How do I locate and download my 2020 Tax Documents (1098-E)? | Repaying Your Loan

Form 1098-E is a Student Loan Interest Statement we issue to borrowers who have paid eligible student loan interest during the calendar year. You may be able to deduct some or even all of that interest on your federal income tax return. The form will include the full amount you've paid in interest toward your student loan in 2020. It’s important to note that we do not have access to the interest amounts you have paid to other lenders prior to refinancing. Your 1098-E form will only show the total interest you have paid on your Earnest loan this year.

Depending on your dashboard layout, and if you have selected to receive your tax form electronically or by mail, accessing your tax documents may look a little different.
