Alimony

2018-Alimony Deduction

Answer:

For any divorce or separation agreement executed after December 31, 2018, or executed before that date but modified after, alimony payments are not deductible by the payor spouse.

If a pre-existing agreement is modified after December 31, 2018, the new rules will only apply if the modification expressly provides that the new law should be applicable.

Correspondingly, the recipient spouse will not have to include the alimony payments received as income.
