As a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, you may only deduct alimony payments that are required under a divorce or separation agreement that was executed before December 31, 2018. If your divorce or separation was finalized after that date, the payments that you have made will not be deductible. Therefore, the TurboTax program will ask for additional information in order to verify whether the alimony payments are deductible or not.
