Only takes a minute to recheck the 90 of the blade with a combination square, and then run it in the miter slot to check against the blade, if the blade is good scoot the fence over to the close miter slot. Miter slots don’t move, so if the blade side is good, the fence side will be too.

You have gotten several responses saying check this, no kidding here, your TS is not 90* square, some direction it’s off.

If you find this to be a fact, it may take a little bit to make it right. Don’t sweat that, you will instantly become safer, and your work will improve once you either shift your table, or if you are lucky all you will need to do is fix that indicator which is off saying you don’t have any tilt. I think you do. Maybe realign your fence. It’s one of them, or you would note the bend in the taper jig.
