Custom Taxonomy Not Showing Up on Post Page

enter image description here

I have a custom post type with a custom taxonomy that has been working fine for years, but recently I’ve seen that the custom taxonomy doesn’t show up in the individual custom post type anymore. However, it does show up in the listing and I can quick edit it just fine.

I disabled all our plugins and the same issue. Any ideas on what I’m missing?

This is the code I have to build the custom post type and taxonomy.

// Register Profiles
function cpt_profiles() {
    $labels = array(
        'name' => __( 'Profile', 'profile' ),
        'singular_name' => __( 'Profile', 'profile' ),
        'add_new' => __( 'Add Profile', 'profile' ),
        'all_items' => __( 'All Profiles', 'profile' ),
        'add_new_item' => __( 'Add New Profile', 'profile' ),
        'edit_item' => __( 'Edit Profile', 'profile' ),
        'new_item' => __( 'New Profile', 'profile' ),
        'view_item' => __( 'View Profile', 'profile' ),
        'search_items' => __( 'Search Profiles', 'profile' ),
        'not_found' => __( 'No Profiles found', 'profile' ),
        'not_found_in_trash' => __( 'No Profiles found in Trash', 'profile' ),
        'parent_item_colon' => __( 'Parent Profile:', 'profile' ),
        'menu_name' => __( 'Profiles', 'profile' ),
    );
    $rewrite = array(
        'slug'                  => 'profile',
        'with_front'            => false,
        'pages'                 => true,

    );

    register_post_type( 'profile', $args );
}
add_action( 'init', 'cpt_profiles' );

// Register Profile Areas
function tax_profile_topics() {

    $labels = array(
