Tax Year Prior to 2020: Are the following deductible:Homeowners InsuranceHome WarrantyFees/charges related to refinancing my house (ex: appraisal fees, notary, doc prep, recording fees, etc.

If it's a personal residence, those fees are not deductible.  You can deduct any interest or real estate taxes on your Settlement Statement that are not already included on your Form 1098. Only pro-rated amounts can be deducted, not prepaid amounts held for escrow.

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?

It goes in the same area as your regular mortgage interest. When you enter the new mortgage interest, the software will ask you questions about the new loan and you will be able to select that it was a refinance.
