<What's the AGI threshold above which student loan interest isn't deductible?>
$65000, or $130000 if filing jointly. The benefit begins to phase out, however, at $50000/$100000.
<Also, that AGI is figured from gross wages after subtracting the 401(k) contributions, right?>
This is figured through MAGI [Modified Adjusted Gross Income], and 401(k) contributions are subtracted. It becomes AGI only after any student loan interest deduction is included.
