Make Sure You Consider The Tax Effects Of Divorce

There are a number of important tax matters which must be considered when an individual faces a divorce. For example, child support is not taxable income to the recipient nor is it tax deductible to the payer. On the other hand, spousal support represents taxable income to the recipient and is tax deductible to the payer.

These are just two of the many important tax issues that need to be considered when planning your divorce and the division of marital property. When and how assets are divided can have significant financial consequences if improperly handled, particularly in the cases of real estate, retirement assets and stocks.
