    It would be helpful if you had a more specific question. Those lines are where you deduct mortgage interest, points, PMI, etc. Post what your situation is and someone can guide you. If this is homework and you’re looking for a quick summary from a taxpro here you won’t get much help.

    there is too much to summarize in one or two sentences to make it easy for you
    the best thing to do is check off each item that does not apply and deal with the one that do
