Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
1098E is to report student loan interest - a deduction, not an income. It looks like the government paid off the Wells Fargo, including some interest. Because you didn't pay off the loans yourself, you are really not entitled for deduction. And gain, this is not a reportable income.
Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
