Can I deduct any points that the lender pays on my refinance? This is my first time refinancing.

I think you want to know if you can deduct points you paid to the lender on the refinance.
Points paid to refinance a home mortgage are not deductible in full in the year you pay them but you can deduct them ratably over the term of the loan.
