There are no taxes on the principal of any loan, student or otherwise.

In fact, there are no taxes on the payor of interest on a loan, student or otherwise. (The receipient of interest has taxable income of the amount earned).

The interest paid on a loan secured by ones residence, are generally, deductible (the opposite of paying taxes)..

No. Student loans are borrowed money, and is not considered "income;" therefore, you do not include them on your taxes.
