Divorce reality expert Nan Cohen shares some tax tips to consider when preparing your divorce agreement
- 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.
- 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.
- Medical Expenses. A child can be treated as a dependent of both parents for medical purposes. Each parent may deduct the medical expenses he or she pays for the child, regardless of which parent claims the dependent deduction
