    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.
