Federal student loan; not paying on it yet

Through FAFSA I qualified for a federal student loan. I am still in school and have not started making payments yet.  Do I still need to include any of this information on my taxes?  If so, where do I do it?

No you do not have to report that you have a student loan.  Any qualified educational expenses that you paid with the loan can be used to claim education credits.  After you start repayment, you may be able to deduct the student loan interest.
