- Child Support vs. Alimony. Alimony payments are taxable to the recipient and deductible by the payer. Child support payments are neither taxable nor deductible. Make sure your agreement clearly lists which payments are for which purpose and discuss with your accountant.
- Ex-spouse Social Security benefits. As a result of the “Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015” divorced spouses may collect Social Security Benefits from their ex spouse under certain circumstances. Criteria include the length of the marriage, current marital status, and age to name a few. For full details you should check with your social security office and consult your tax preparer and attorney to get details on eligibility, documentation and tax consequences.
- Medical Insurance. If you have purchased health insurance through the government “Marketplace”, and depending upon your income level and marital status this may impact your taxes. You will receive a 1095-A form and must complete and return a Form 8692 . Form 8692 is quite complex and you should review it with your tax preparer. Some of the parameters include taxpayers divorced or legally separated this past year, and taxpayers married at year end but filing separate returns with one spouse filing as Head of Household.
