I’ve read over and over (and believe) that planing finish off boards will dull your knives much more quickly. That said, I don’t see why. The planer knives are cutting into the wood under the finish, by the time it pulls the chip I’m betting the knife may not have even touched the finish. So, do it but you may have to sharpen your knives. BTW, shellac is one of the easier finishes to remove with a card scraper.
