Settling finances can be one of the most difficult and trying aspects of divorce. It’s complex and confusing and couples rarely see eye-to-eye. Thanks to the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, it’ll be even tougher.
Some areas that may impact divorcing couples will be:
- alimony will no longer be deductible for the payer, and taxes don’t need to be paid on it by the recipient
- More generous child tax credit rules
- a new $500 credit for dependents who are not eligible for child tax credit
- the standard personal and dependent exemptions have been eliminated for 2018-2025, so this tax season is the last time you will be able to claim it
