1098-E Tax Form

1098-E Tax Form

Student loan interest payments are reported on the IRS Form 1098-E, Student Loan Interest Statement.

If you made federal student loan payments in 2015, you may be eligible to deduct a portion of the interest you paid on your 2015 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 2015 met or exceeded $600.

  • Your servicer may send you your 1098-E electronically or via U.S. Postal Service.

  • Check with your servicer if you haven't yet received your 1098-E for 2015. Your servicer has 1098-E information on the home page of its website. Look there for quick answers to your questions.

  • 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 2015, you will receive a separate 1098-E from each servicer.
