Alimony

I am divorced , but still live in the same house as my ex-wife because we have two young children . Are the alimony payments I make to her deductible?

Answer:

If you live in the same house as your ex-spouse and are legally separated or divorced, you cannot deduct your alimony payments, nor is your ex-wife required to report the alimony as income.
