I recently received a 1098-E for my student loan interest payments, but my borrower failed to update my address on the form. Is it still okay to use, or should I ask them to fix it?
Yes, go ahead and use that form as it is. The address will have no impact, because your name and Social Security number are the relevant details for the IRS to trace this form to your return.
