File back taxes for free Include As Interest In addition to simple interest on the loan, if all other requirements are met, the items discussed below can be student loan interest. File back taxes for free Loan origination fee. File back taxes for free   In general, this is a one-time fee charged by the lender when a loan is made. File back taxes for free To be deductible as interest, a loan origination fee must be for the use of money rather than for property or services (such as commitment fees or processing costs) provided by the lender. File back taxes for free A loan origination fee treated as interest accrues over the term of the loan. File back taxes for free   Loan origination fees were not required to be reported on Form 1098-E, Student Loan Interest Statement, for loans made before September 1, 2004. File back taxes for free If loan origination fees are not included in the amount reported on your Form 1098-E, you can use any reasonable method to allocate the loan origination fees over the term of the loan. File back taxes for free The method shown in the example below allocates equal portions of the loan origination fee to each payment required under the terms of the loan. File back taxes for free A method that results in the double deduction of the same portion of a loan origination fee would not be reasonable. File back taxes for free Example. File back taxes for free In August 2004, Bill took out a student loan for $16,000 to pay the tuition for his senior year of college. File back taxes for free The lender charged a 3% loan origination fee ($480) that was withheld from the funds Bill received. File back taxes for free Bill began making payments on his student loan in 2013. File back taxes for free Because the loan origination fee was not included in his 2013 Form 1098-E, Bill can use any reasonable method to allocate that fee over the term of the loan. File back taxes for free Bill's loan is payable in 120 equal monthly payments. File back taxes for free He allocates the $480 fee equally over the total number of payments ($480 ÷ 120 months = $4 per month). File back taxes for free Bill made 7 payments in 2013, so he paid $28 ($4 × 7) of interest attributable to the loan origination fee. File back taxes for free To determine his student loan interest deduction, he will add the $28 to the amount of other interest reported to him on Form 1098-E. File back taxes for free Capitalized interest. File back taxes for free   This is unpaid interest on a student loan that is added by the lender to the outstanding principal balance of the loan. File back taxes for free Capitalized interest is treated as interest for tax purposes and is deductible as payments of principal are made on the loan. File back taxes for free No deduction for capitalized interest is allowed in a year in which no loan payments were made. File back taxes for free Interest on revolving lines of credit. File back taxes for free   This interest, which includes interest on credit card debt, is student loan interest if the borrower uses the line of credit (credit card) only to pay qualified education expenses. File back taxes for free See Qualified Education Expenses , earlier. File back taxes for free Interest on refinanced student loans. File back taxes for free   This includes interest on both: Consolidated loans—loans used to refinance more than one student loan of the same borrower, and Collapsed loans—two or more loans of the same borrower that are treated by both the lender and the borrower as one loan. File back taxes for free    If you refinance a qualified student loan for more than your original loan and you use the additional amount for any purpose other than qualified education expenses, you cannot deduct any interest paid on the refinanced loan. File back taxes for free Voluntary interest payments. File back taxes for free   These are payments made on a qualified student loan during a period when interest payments are not required, such as when the borrower has been granted a deferment or the loan has not yet entered repayment status. File back taxes for free Example. File back taxes for free The payments on Roger's student loan were scheduled to begin in June 2012, 6 months after he graduated from college. File back taxes for free He began making payments as required. File back taxes for free In September 2013, Roger enrolled in graduate school on a full-time basis. File back taxes for free He applied for and was granted deferment of his loan payments while in graduate school. File back taxes for free Wanting to pay down his student loan as much as possible, he made loan payments in October and November 2013. File back taxes for free Even though these were voluntary (not required) payments, Roger can deduct the interest paid in October and November. File back taxes for free Allocating Payments Between Interest and Principal The allocation of payments between interest and principal for tax purposes might not be the same as the allocation shown on the Form 1098-E or other statement you receive from the lender or loan servicer. File back taxes for free To make the allocation for tax purposes, a payment generally applies first to stated interest that remains unpaid as of the date the payment is due, second to any loan origination fees allocable to the payment, third to any capitalized interest that remains unpaid as of the date the payment is due, and fourth to the outstanding principal. File back taxes for free Example. File back taxes for free In August 2012, Peg took out a $10,000 student loan to pay the tuition for her senior year of college. File back taxes for free The lender charged a 3% loan origination fee ($300) that was withheld from the funds Peg received. File back taxes for free The interest (5% simple) on this loan accrued while she completed her senior year and for 6 months after she graduated. File back taxes for free At the end of that period, the lender determined the amount to be repaid by capitalizing all accrued but unpaid interest ($625 interest accrued from August 2012 through October 2013) and adding it to the outstanding principal balance of the loan. File back taxes for free The loan is payable over 60 months, with a payment of $200. File back taxes for free 51 due on the first of each month, beginning November 2013. File back taxes for free Peg did not receive a Form 1098-E for 2013 from her lender because the amount of interest she paid did not require the lender to issue an information return. File back taxes for free However, she did receive an account statement from the lender that showed the following 2013 payments on her outstanding loan of $10,625 ($10,000 principal + $625 accrued but unpaid interest). File back taxes for free Payment Date   Payment   Stated Interest   Principal November 2013   $200. File back taxes for free 51   $44. File back taxes for free 27   $156. File back taxes for free 24 December 2013   $200. File back taxes for free 51   $43. File back taxes for free 62   $156. File back taxes for free 89 Totals   $401. File back taxes for free 02   $87. File back taxes for free 89   $313. File back taxes for free 13 To determine the amount of interest that could be deducted on the loan for 2013, Peg starts with the total amount of stated interest she paid, $87. File back taxes for free 89. File back taxes for free Next, she allocates the loan origination fee over the term of the loan ($300 ÷ 60 months = $5 per month). File back taxes for free A total of $10 ($5 of each of the two principal payments) should be treated as interest for tax purposes. File back taxes for free Peg then applies the unpaid capitalized interest ($625) to the two principal payments in the order in which they were made, and determines that the remaining amount of principal of both payments is treated as interest for tax purposes. File back taxes for free Assuming that Peg qualifies to take the student loan interest deduction, she can deduct $401. File back taxes for free 02 ($87. File back taxes for free 89 + $10 + $303. File back taxes for free 13). File back taxes for free For 2014, Peg will continue to allocate $5 of the loan origination fee to the principal portion of each monthly payment she makes and treat that amount as interest for tax purposes. File back taxes for free She also will apply the remaining amount of capitalized interest ($625 − $303. File back taxes for free 13 = $321. File back taxes for free 87) to the principal payments in the order in which they are made until the balance is zero, and treat those amounts as interest for tax purposes. File back taxes for free Do Not Include As Interest You cannot claim a student loan interest deduction for any of the following items. File back taxes for free Interest you paid on a loan if, under the terms of the loan, you are not legally obligated to make interest payments. File back taxes for free Loan origination fees that are payments for property or services provided by the lender, such as commitment fees or processing costs. File back taxes for free Interest you paid on a loan to the extent payments were made through your participation in the National Health Service Corps Loan Repayment Program (the “NHSC Loan Repayment Program”) or certain other loan repayment assistance programs. File back taxes for free For more information, see Student Loan Repayment Assistance in chapter 5, Student Loan Cancellations and Repayment Assistance. File back taxes for free When Must Interest Be Paid You can deduct all interest you paid during the year on your student loan, including voluntary payments, until the loan is paid off. File back taxes for free Can You Claim the Deduction Generally, you can claim the deduction if all of the following requirements are met. File back taxes for free Your filing status is any filing status except married filing separately. File back taxes for free No one else is claiming an exemption for you on his or her tax return. File back taxes for free You are legally obligated to pay interest on a qualified student loan. File back taxes for free You paid interest on a qualified student loan. File back taxes for free Claiming an exemption for you. File back taxes for free   Another taxpayer is claiming an exemption for you if he or she lists your name and other required information on his or her Form 1040 (or Form 1040A), line 6c, or Form 1040NR, line 7c. File back taxes for free Example 1. File back taxes for free During 2013, Josh paid $600 interest on his qualified student loan. File back taxes for free Only he is legally obligated to make the payments. File back taxes for free No one claimed an exemption for Josh for 2013. File back taxes for free Assuming all other requirements are met, Josh can deduct the $600 of interest he paid on his 2013 Form 1040 or 1040A. File back taxes for free Example 2. File back taxes for free During 2013, Jo paid $1,100 interest on her qualified student loan. File back taxes for free Only she is legally obligated to make the payments. File back taxes for free Jo's parents claimed an exemption for her on their 2013 tax return. File back taxes for free In this case, neither Jo nor her parents may deduct the student loan interest Jo paid in 2013. File back taxes for free Interest paid by others. File back taxes for free   If you are the person legally obligated to make interest payments and someone else makes a payment of interest on your behalf, you are treated as receiving the payments from the other person and, in turn, paying the interest. File back taxes for free Example 1. File back taxes for free Darla obtained a qualified student loan to attend college. File back taxes for free After Darla's graduation from college, she worked as an intern for a nonprofit organization. File back taxes for free As part of the internship program, the nonprofit organization made an interest payment on behalf of Darla. File back taxes for free This payment was treated as additional compensation and reported in box 1 of her Form W-2. File back taxes for free Assuming all other qualifications are met, Darla can deduct this payment of interest on her tax return. File back taxes for free Example 2. File back taxes for free Ethan obtained a qualified student loan to attend college. File back taxes for free After graduating from college, the first monthly payment on his loan was due in December. File back taxes for free As a gift, Ethan's mother made this payment for him. File back taxes for free No one is claiming a dependency exemption for Ethan on his or her tax return. File back taxes for free Assuming all other qualifications are met, Ethan can deduct this payment of interest on his tax return. File back taxes for free No Double Benefit Allowed You cannot deduct as interest on a student loan any amount that is an allowable deduction under any other provision of the tax law (for example, as home mortgage interest). File back taxes for free Figuring the Deduction Your student loan interest deduction for 2013 is generally the smaller of: $2,500, or The interest you paid in 2013. File back taxes for free However, the amount determined above may be gradually reduced (phased out) or eliminated based on your filing status and MAGI as explained below. File back taxes for free You can use Worksheet 4-1. File back taxes for free Student Loan Interest Deduction Worksheet (at the end of this chapter) to figure both your MAGI and your deduction. File back taxes for free Form 1098-E. File back taxes for free   To help you figure your student loan interest deduction, you should receive Form 1098-E. File back taxes for free Generally, an institution (such as a bank or governmental agency) that received interest payments of $600 or more during 2013 on one or more qualified student loans must send Form 1098-E (or acceptable substitute) to each borrower by January 31, 2014. File back taxes for free   For qualified student loans taken out before September 1, 2004, the institution is required to include on Form 1098-E only payments of stated interest. File back taxes for free Other interest payments, such as certain loan origination fees and capitalized interest, may not appear on the form you receive. File back taxes for free However, if you pay qualifying interest that is not included on Form 1098-E, you can also deduct those amounts. File back taxes for free See Allocating Payments Between Interest and Principal , earlier. File back taxes for free    The lender may ask for a completed Form W-9S, or similar statement to obtain the borrower's name, address, and taxpayer identification number. File back taxes for free The form may also be used by the borrower to certify that the student loan was incurred solely to pay for qualified education expenses. File back taxes for free Effect of the Amount of Your Income on the Amount of Your Deduction The amount of your student loan interest deduction is phased out (gradually reduced) if your MAGI is between $60,000 and $75,000 ($125,000 and $155,000 if you file a joint return). File back taxes for free You cannot take a student loan interest deduction if your MAGI is $75,000 or more ($155,000 or more if you file a joint return). File back taxes for free Modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). File back taxes for free   For most taxpayers, MAGI is adjusted gross income (AGI) as figured on their federal income tax return before subtracting any deduction for student loan interest. File back taxes for free However, as discussed below, there may be other modifications. File back taxes for free Table 4-2 shows how the amount of your MAGI can affect your student loan interest deduction. File back taxes for free Table 4-2.
