Can You Deduct Payments Made to an Ex-Spouse?

Posted on July 18, 2012

Are payments made to a former spouse deductible on your income tax return? It depends on the language used by the parties or the court in the divorce proceedings. The general rule is that alimony or separate maintenance payments are deductible by the payor and includible in income by the recipient provided that the strict terms of the Internal Revenue Code are met. Are you in a divorce proceeding? Has the IRS disallowed any payments you have made to an ex-spouse? Call us, we can help. Call 877 4 IRS LAW
