If i refinance a rental property and take out cash, would I have to pay income tax on the funds I receive?

I haven't conducted one yet but from my readings on BP and elsewhere, no this is not taxed, it is moving a portion of an asset from illiquid to liquid.

No.  It is not income.  (If you are in the US).

No, its merely a transfer of assets in exchange for liability.
