Alimony and Child Support Deductions

Navigation:  Home > Tax Law > Alimony and Child Support Deductions


Tax arrangements are generally made in a divorce settlement. In general, the spouse paying the alimony can deduct the payments, so long as they are paid in cash, check, or money order, but the other spouse the recipient must then pay tax on the alimony as income. However, if you are receiving taxable alimony, you can write off legal expenses as a deductions. As for child support, there is no taxable deduction. Child support payments are not alimony.
