Rebuild Your Relationship After Parental Alienation
Many noncustodial parents have more reason than most taxpayers to dislike April 15. That’s because, according to the Internal Revenue Service, child support payments are not deductible expenses to the noncustodial payer. Nor does the IRS classify support payments as taxable income to the custodial parent who receives them.
David Bruner, a Merced, California, certified public accountant writing in the Merced Star newspaper(http://www.acfc.org/site/R?i=4U3gISrK19YC-2wnEbLAPA), reminds us of these facts, which also include:
- In the event you are receiving child support, you do have to report as taxable income the amount that exceeds the child support payments required by court-ordered custody.
- Alimony, unlike child support, is a tax-deductible expense for the person paying it and taxable income to the person receiving it.
- However, for the alimony to be tax deductible you and your divorced or separated spouse cannot live in the same household when you make the payments.
- You do not have to itemize to deduct alimony payments. Report them as an adjustment on the first page of the 1040 tax form.
- You must report the recipient's Social Security number to get the alimony deduction. The IRS will use this number to make sure the recipient reports the alimony as income.
