We started making small payments on our student loans this past year.
We were set up to pay 75 a month and I have been paying 100 a month.
I wanted to pay a little extra but couldn't afford more than that.
Well, they emailed me a form today telling me we may be eligible to claim what we paid in on taxes.
Apparently out of the 800 we paid in(didnt start paying until May)765 of it went straight to interest.
HOLY SHIT! LOL
Anywho, apparently if you pay more than 600 in interest throughout the yr, you may be able to claim it on taxes.
I hope they are right and I wonder if I will get any of it back! LOL
