A loan is not taxable as income. If you default on the loan and the lender issues you a 1099C for cancelling the debt then that amount is taxable, but the loan when you first secure it is not a taxable event.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.
