You should still apply for student loan forgiveness despite taxes

North Carolina, Mississippi, and Indiana have all decided to tax student loan forgiveness, while states like Minnesota, Arkansas, West Virginia and Wisconsin remain undecided on the issue.  The rest of the states will not require additional state taxes.

Though it may be confusing, student loan forgiveness is still worth it for many borrowers, even if they’re taxed.
