Trump Tax Plan – Alimony Deduction, For Cases Settled after 2018, is ELIMINATED under Trump Tax Plan

Are you going through a divorce? Might there be alimony as part of your settlement? Will it not be settled before 12/31/2018?

Trump’s tax reform plan will eliminate the deduction for alimony paid for cases finalized after 12/31/2018.

Make sure your attorney is aware of this potential change to family law. Your attorney must keep this mind when negotiating and calculating alimony because using the existing calculations will leave the alimony payer in a terrible deficit if the divorce is not finalized before 12/31/18.

As always please reach out to me to discuss this in greater detail.
