Is alimony taxed?

Divorce does not escape taxes. Federal taxes apply to alimony and have financial implications. Any support paid to a spouse or former spouse under a divorce decree, separate maintenance decree or a separation agreement. The spouse paying spousal support may claim it as a deduction. The recipient must treat alimony as income and pay federal taxes on it.
