I will pay few hundreds of dollars to my husband for the child support. Do I pay tax for it? Does my husband pay tax for it? Thanks!
ATTORNEY ANSWER BY MARGARET L. CROSS-BELIVEAU:
Child support is neither deductible by the payor nor is it income to the recipient. Alimony is deductible by the payor and income to the recipient.
