You will enter the amount from box 6 on a later screen. Points paid when you purchased your return are dealt with in detail after you enter the amounts in boxes 1-5 in TurboTax. Points are treated differently when they are paid on the initial purchase vs. as part of a refinance, and it's all handled in one section.
