Divorce & Marriage Issues
I receive both alimony and child support for my children . Is either payment taxable ?
Alimony or separate maintenance payments must be included on your tax return as income in the year received. Child support is not taxable and not reportable. Likewise your ex-spouse can deduct the alimony but cannot deduct the child support.
