You should be aware that In looking at potential property settlement or dash payments, it is important to consider the impact of taxes. They can greatly affect alimony, child support, property settlements, distributions of retirement benefits and other items that you may be addressing in your divorce or separation agreement. Alimony or separate maintenance; is deductible by the paying spouse and is taxed to the payee spouse unless both agree that It will be tax-free to the recipient and nondeductible by the payer. A spouse may agree to give up deduction If It would bo of little or no value, such as where he or she has deductible tax tosses from other sources. Another important point about alimony Is that you can't just label a ' payment -as^iimbrlyVa^Mpe^ltlo'-be'^at^ai''^^' for tax purposes. A number of requirements must be met Also, special rules prevent alimony deductions for what are disguised property settlements. Child support payments are, not deductible or taxable. As with alimony, merely labeling, payments as child support is not enough. Various requirements must be met. Closely related to child support is the issue of who gets to claim the dependency exemption for the child. In general, it goes to the parent who has custody of the child, even if the bulk of the child's support comes from the noncustodial parent. Property settlements, such as you get the house and the spouse gets stocks, generally are tax-free to both parties. Does that mean taxes are not important in property settle- merits? Not at all. While the property settlement itself ordinarily is not taxable, who gets what property can greatly affect either spouse's potential future taxes if the property received is later sold, this is because of the rules regarding basis, which is the yardstick for measuring tax gain or loss whan you sell an item. > , ' *~*" ' """* ~- ' ' John S.
