Is the interest paid in 2007 on a regular loan (not mortgage) TAX DEDUCTABLE for a regular employee?

The loan was used to live (pay rent, food, etc.) while on parental leave with no income. the second half of the year, after the parental leave, I did work and had income. My question is just regarding the interest paid on that loan. THANKS.

    No. Interest on a personal loan is never deductable. Sorry.

    No it is not. Only interest reported on a 1098 is deductible. Mortgage Interest, Student Loan Interest ETC.

    In Canada for individuals the only loan interest that is tax deductable is loans for investment purposes. Even those loans have rules on them.
