Taxes FAQ

You may have additional 2023 interest paid:

  • If you were serviced by a different servicer in 2023, interest paid toward your qualified education loan prior to being serviced at MOHELA may be reported by your prior servicer.
  • If your MOHELA account transitioned to our new loan servicing system at mohela.studentaid.gov, we'll send a separate notification for the interest paid after the transition.

Please retain a copy of this Form 1098-E for your records.
