I've been paying on this loan for the last 12 years, but since he's no longer a dependent and therefore not listed in my Turbotax list, how and where do I claim the deduction?
If the loan is in your name and you are making payments on the loan, you can claim the student loan interest deduction even if your son is no longer your dependent.
You claim the deduction by entering form 1098-E in Federal Taxes > Deductions & Credits > Education > Student Loan interest paid. When TurboTax asks Whose name was the student loan in?, you list yourself.
