Next question: 2. where is the question that asks if the home loan is a refinance or a home improvement loan. I've looked quite a bit but cannot find them.
To get to the mortgage interest section to find those two questions:
1. Click Federal Taxes across the top.
2. Click Deductions & Credits across the top.
3. Click I’ll choose what I work on.
4. Scroll down to Your Home.
5. Click Start or Update by Mortgage Interest, Refinancing, and Insurance.
