I purchase a home last year and I am trying to fully deduct the points this year, (not amortize) but in the deductions/mortgage interest summary of the turbo tax just the interest are shown, I don't see the points added in that summary, Is this correct or is there something else I am missing?

Open the 1098 worksheet and make sure all the numbers are there. If the points were not reported on the 1098, they go on a different Schedule A line. Go to that line, right-click, and go to the source for that line.
