emsie :  You’re supposed to put your AGI. That’s your W-2 less student loans. It’s line 37 on your 1040.

You need to use your AGI which is going to be different then your actual income.

You don’t have access to your returns from last year at all?  No you can not just deduct your loan interest.

H&R Block and Turbo Tax should have that information saved for you to pull up. If you still can’t find it, go to this website https://www.irs.gov/individuals/electronic-filing-pin-request

You can get it online if you pass the verification process. If not, you will have to call and request a transcript which can take a week or so.

I recommend you at least keep copies of your past 3 years worth of tax returns in case you are ever audited and for verification purposes. If you ever have complex gains/losses in the future that carryover, you will need to make sure that’s accounted for on your current year return should you not use the same tax service.

Hope everything works out!

emsie :  And, no, you cannot just deduct the student loan interest from your W-2 to come to the amount. There are limitations with the student loan interest adjustment. I apologize if my first comment made it appear that way. I was just trying to show that you can’t only put your W-2 information in as it takes into account the adjustment for student loan interest and other items. If you had some interest/dividend income, that’d affect the amount as well.
