How do I locate and download my 2021 Tax Documents (1098-E)? | Repaying Your Loan

Form 1098-E is a Student Loan Interest Statement we issue to clients who’ve 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. It’s important to note that we don’t have access to any interest amounts you’ve paid to other lenders prior to refinancing, so your form will only show the interest you’ve paid on your Earnest loan in 2021. We recommend consulting your tax advisor if you have questions. 

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