Since I am not a CPA, I can't give you the answer. I can say that the IRS does NOT treat the closing costs for refinancing the same way the IRS treats closing costs for a purchase a home. You can find the info on the IRS web site.

Sorry, no.

If you paid points, you can amortize the deduction over the life of the loan if it is owner occupied or a 2nd home.

i.e. $3000 paid in points divided by 30 years equals $100 deduction per year as interest.
