Tax Consequences and Divorce in Illinois

Taxes can impact several parts of a divorce, including:

  • Child Custody: Custody and visitation arrangements have become more complicated in recent years. Today, many divorcing spouses retain joint custody. Since the IRS only allows one party to claim a child as a dependent, it must be decided ahead of time how this will be handled.
  • Alimony and Maintenance: Child support payments have no tax impact. Spousal support, on the other hand, is tax deductible for the payer and must be reported as income by the recipient. If income taxes on maintenance received are not accounted for ahead of time, it can be very burdensome at tax time. For some divorcing couples, unallocated maintenance is a viable option to help reduce the tax burden for both the payer and recipient.
  • Property and Asset Division: There are potential tax consequences when property is divided, such as capital gains taxes for the sale of a house, taxes on retirement account divisions, and which party is allowed to take itemized deductions such as mortgage interest, property taxes, etc. If these and other financial issues are addressed ahead of time, tax liability can be minimized for both spouses.
Addressing tax consequences in a divorce is essential if you want to avoid financial setbacks after everything is finalized. At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, we have in-depth knowledge of divorce tax consequences and how they will affect your post-divorce finances. We offer flexible appointments on nights and weekends for your convenience.
