We refinanced in November and prepaid $2900 in property taxes in our closing costs. Can I claim this or will this be claimed on 2017 taxes? We did not get a 1098.

You can claim them if they were taxes you would have normally paid in 2016.  With that amount, it sounds like this is what they are.  However, if they were prepaid to an escrow/impound account, then they are not deductible until the mortgage company disburses them (which may be in 2017).

Also, you can deduct qualified points paid on a mortgage, but they have to be spread out over the term of the loan. The software will prompt you to select that.  (Points can also be called loan origination fees, maximum loan charges, discount points, or loan discount.)

What kinds of refinancing costs can I deduct?

Where do I enter the real estate taxes I paid?
