Hello Fools,

I've been researching the 60 month student loan interest deduction. After college, I (gasp) defaulted on a student loan. If I do not count the period that I didn't make payments, I am still within the 60 month period. I have found contradictory information within next years IRS filing documents. Can anyone point me to the tax law underlying this rule? All I can find is filing instructions that are too general to address my problem.

Regards,

Reflect
