Student loan interest payments are reported on the IRS Form 1098-E, Student Loan Interest Statement.
If you made federal student loan payments in 2013, you may be eligible to deduct a portion of the interest you paid on your 2013 federal tax return.
Student Loan Servicer
Your student loan servicer (who you make payments to) will provide a copy of your 1098-E if the interest you paid in 2013 exceeded $600.
- Your servicer may send you your 1098-E via U.S. Postal Service or electronically.
- Check with your servicer if you haven't yet received your 1098-E for 2013.
- If you are unsure who your loan servicer is, visit www.nslds.ed.gov or call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243; TTY 1-800-730-8913).
- Note: If you had multiple loan servicers in 2013, you will receive a separate 1098-E from each servicer.
