We sold out house in 2016. Now I'm filling out the forms, but it's asking for the original cost..We refinanced in 2013, should I use that cost?

I originally bought the house in 2004 and since refinancing, I don't have the original paperwork..I do still have the refi paperwork though.

"Original cost" means exactly what it says - the amount that you originally paid for the house when you bought it in 2004. The refinance does not affect the original cost or the amount of your gain.
