Student Loan Interest Deduction - Article by Business Tax Recovery

Time Limits No Longer Apply To Student Loan Deductions

A dramatic change to the Student Loan Interest Deduction has been implemented for the 2002 tax year. Previously, a taxpayer was only allowed to deduct interest paid during the first 60 months of the repayment of the loan. Starting in 2002, this is no longer the case. You can now take the deduction for every year that you make payments on the loan. If it takes you 10 years to pay off the loan, you can take a deduction each year.

The Student Loan Interest Deduction ["SLID"] is a tax deduction that is allowed under the Internal Revenue Code for interest paid on qualified education loans. The maximum deduction each taxpayer can take on their 2002 taxes is $2,500. The deduction is taken against your gross income and will lower your adjusted gross income by up to $2,500 depending on the amount of interest you paid in 2002. This is a significant tax savings for individuals with student loans!

4. Other necessary expenses such as transportation.

As long as the loan in question was used to pay the costs of attending an educational institution at which you were enrolled at least half time, you are eligible to claim the deduction. The institution that you attended must be a college, university, vocational school or secondary education institution that qualifies for such loans. The loan need not be federally gua...
