Are closing costs tax deductible?

Buyer-paid points usually are deductible in the year they are paid for an original mortgage. A plain-English discussion from TurboTax is here:

Below is a link to an IRS fact sheet on this subject.

Refi's are a little different. My accountant explained that on a refi, they are deductible but are split over the length of the loan. So if you refi'd to a 15 year loan you'd get to deduct 1/15th of them.
