Student loan repayment plans and tax filing are intertwined. Knowing the impact of your tax filing on your federal student loan repayment plan can be critical to saving money.

In order to determine the monthly payment for your student loan income-driven plan, the Department of Education downloads the borrower’s last filed tax return from the IRS. Work with a GradFin tax professional to compare your tax liability options with your student loan repayment options. We’ll help you understand your tax filing and loan repayment options and help prepare your taxes during the tax filing season.
