Phil, that must be it, thanks. I guess for Staffords you only start paying 6 months after graduation (or thereabouts). Interest has been accruing all along, but the first payment was due in January 2009.

Sallie Mae gave no reason. The website just said not deductible. Publication 970 says paid, not accrued, so I think I have my answer.

Thanks again.
