You stated that you PAID your daughter student loan - correct?If so - that is why your daugher received form reported her student loan interest.
As you likely not paid the full loan and it partially form forgiven - that is why you received 1099C reported forgiven amount.
Because you both were responsible - multiple debtors - each received that reporting forms - that is based on requirements.
Generally that forgiven debt may be excluded - if you or your daughter is insolvent - but you may not exclude it - ONLY one person is included it into income - not both.
Regarding student loan interest deduction - you also may be eligible to deduct it if at the time the loan was taken your daughter was your dependent.
