Alimony Then and Now: Adjusting to the Tax Changes for 2019

5 (4 votes)

Any divorce or separation instrument executed after December 31, 2018 will be treated very differently from a tax perspective than it would have been if it were finalized on or before that date. The main difference is that alimony will no longer be tax deductible to the payor and will no longer be included as income for the person receiving the payments. This change will make after-divorce cash flow planning even more important.
