Mansfield Divorce Lawyer Examines the Tax Deductions for Alimony and Child Support Payments
As an experienced Mansfield Divorce Lawyer, I am often asked by clients how alimony or child support payments can be deducted from taxes. I will advise them that alimony is always deductible by the payor spouse in Massachusetts. You cannot label child support as alimony without potentially running into tax problems. Also, the point at which the alimony ends cannot be based on a child-related event, such as reaching a certain age, or going to college.
