Lee. I saw your recent interview regarding our student loan debacle. I applied for a disability discharge for lung cancer with a prognosis of 6 to 12 months to live. and it was granted. However, I then found out the amount discharged is now due as a FEDERAL TAX! I got the discharge because the only one benefiting from my loan was the service company (ACS) who was receiving regular interest. I am 77 and have not been able to pay on the loan for the past 10 years as I only receive social security benefits. Had I not applied for the disability discharge I would not have had the federal tax liability but the interest would be continuing to rise. I didn't think that was fair.
