How Will Alimony Impact Your Taxes?
Posted on Aug 5, 2010 1:00pm PDT
If you are paying
alimony in the state of Florida, you may have questions about how your payments
will impact your taxes. In Florida, alimony is a tax deductible expense,
which means you can claim these payments as part of your expenses. Additionally,
the spouse that receives alimony payments must list the payments on his
or her taxes as part of his or her income.
This tax structure is required by law. For this reason, neither spouse
should consent to any verbiage in divorce agreements that does not comply
with this tax structure.
If you pay or receive large amounts of alimony in Florida, it can definitely
impact your overall taxes and financial big picture. Should you have questions
