Impact of the New Tax Law on Spousal Support

Currently, spousal support is tax deductible to the individual that is paying it (payor) and considered taxable income to the recipient (payee). That is all changing due to the new tax laws enacted by Congress.

Starting January 1, 2019, spousal support will no longer be tax deductible for the payor and will not considered taxable income to the payee. This new tax law will only impact court orders and separation agreements made after December 31, 2018. This recent change will significantly impact the way spousal support is negotiated and decided upon by the Courts.
