Do I have to say yes to home taxes and insurance and refinance if I just want to do the standard deduction? I have never had to put in all the info and now it is asking me

I don’t want to claim any of that for a deduction

No, if you want to take the Standard Deduction instead of itemizing you do not have to enter any additional information.  You can just hit continue and not enter anything or click on the Deductions and Credits tab to take you back to that main screen.
