New Alimony Laws
Was just talking to my lawyer today and she brought up the subject of alimony, it doesn't apply to me but she had an interesting comment. Apparently the new tax laws do not count alimony as income, therefore if someone is paying CS and alimony the receiver does not claim the alimony as income and the obligator no longer gets to claim it as an exemption. She said it was written in a very confusing way and it's basically open to interpretation by whoever is enforcing it. Thank gawd DH only has one more year of this extortion! He's going to be pizzzed that it's no longer a deduction.
