That's a good point. There are two things to think about regarding the tax implications of your debt.

1. If he doesn't have a high paying job, he is probably not paying enough money in taxes to capitalize on refunds.

2. There are limitations on how much interest you can get back from the government.

i.e. I pay close to ~$5,000 in student loan interest. The most that I can receive on a refund is $2,000. That, in my opinion, is not "GOOD DEBT".

cheers,
