There is only one place to enter "miscellaneous deductions" and there are fields explicitly for union dues and tax preparation fees, but they are not appearing anywhere on schedule A.

Would they affect the return if they did? IOW, do you have enough miscellaneous deductions to top the 2% exclusion? (IIRC you mentioned that you do itemize.)

Whether they would affect the return or not, I do think they should show up on the Schedule A just to avoid user confusion about whether they're lost somewhere.
