Do I need to include child support on my federal taxes?

No. According to IRS rules, child support received doesn't count as taxable income, nor can you deduct any child support payments you make.

A handful of states have rules that differ from the IRS. If your state is one of them, we'll cover that when you prepare your state tax return.
