I’m not associated with the support ticket system. I just know that it’s a more direct route to the developer or those that can better help with direct support. Unfortunately, since I cannot recreate the problem that you’re having I can’t really help you. There really isn’t anything in the function you posted above that should keep a taxonomy field from saving on a front end acf_form.
