Post: Tax Question - Divorce related
Posted by satya on 10/14/07
I need some advise for Tax preparation.
I am getting divorce in next few month. Me and my wife are
both citizen of India and our divorce case is filed in
India. As per our agreement I will be paying one time
alimony to her. This will be a fixed amount paid at once at
time of divorce case settlement. This amount will be paid in
India only. We don't have a property settlement as there is
no joint property between us.
I live in USA and will be filing my tax in USA only. My
question is can I file amount paid as tax deductible. I know
alimony paid to your spouse is tax deductible as per US tax
law. I need to know if same rule applies for one time
alimony paid. Also do I need to specify any text in my
divorce documents for this.
Quick response is very much appreciated as we are in
preparation of divorce agreement documents.
