Tax FAQs

During 2023, Edfinancial completed a conversion to a new servicing system to better serve you. The interest paid to your account on each servicing system will be provided separately. For interest paid while on our current system, you can view and print a copy of your 1098-E tax form by accessing the "Tax Statements" section of your online account. We will notify you via email or physical mail if any interest was paid to your account while on our previous system.

You may be able to deduct interest paid on eligible student loans. Edfinancial's customer service representatives cannot provide tax advice. If you have questions about allowable deductions for the interest or origination fees paid on your loan(s), please contact the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) toll free at 1-800-829-1040, or a tax professional.

Only the amount of interest you paid and the tax ID (EIN) number are required to file your taxes. The actual IRS Form 1098-E is not required.

Edfinancial utilizes more than one tax ID (EIN) number based on the owner of your loan(s). After tax information becomes available, you may view the tax ID number that applies to your specific loan(s) by reviewing your 1098-E tax form.
