Get Richer This Tax Season: 10 Easy Ways Millennials Can Maximize Refunds and Avoid Costly Mistakes


- Joseph Carpenito's Featured Quote:


4. Use student loans — to your advantage


Sadly, it feels like student loan debt is just a universal part of being a millennial.


But there's a silver lining: Millennials contending with student loans have the opportunity to deduct interest paid on student loans.


"Many millennials rush to get their taxes done online as soon as they get their W-2s and don’t wait for their 1098-Es from their student loan providers," Joseph Carpenito, a licensed financial advisor at Raymond James and founder of the financial site MyPlan2Day.com, explained to Mic. "[For] a young person with limited deductions, student loan interest may potentially be one of their largest deductions."


You can deduct up to $2,500 of student loan interest paid in a given year.There are, however, income limits for this deduction, so be sure to check out tips for claiming the student loan interest deduction on the IRS website.
