Did you know that there are 4 types of "student loan forgiveness" programs, but only one is 100% tax free all the time? If you're thinking you qualify for loan forgiveness, make sure you understand the taxes you'll pay as well.
All Federal student loan forgiveness programs are tax free, but if you receive other types of loan forgiveness you could face taxability questions.
