Is My Alimony Tax Deductible?

As of January 1, 2019, alimony tax law has changed.

If you are paying or receiving alimony after January 1, 2019, you may question, “Is my alimony tax deductible? The short answer is that you will no longer be allowed to claim the alimony as income. Or list the alimony as a deduction on your taxes. Before January 1, 2019, the spouse receiving alimony could list it as taxable income. And the spouse paying alimony could list it as a deduction, but this is no longer true. This applies to all alimony orders entered after January 1, 2019. This new change in the tax law will not apply to any Orders for alimony entered before January 1, 2019.
