Can I remove the alimony entry which requires an upgrade to Deluxe for $70 without starting all over ?

It depends. Alimony (spousal support) you received should be reported as income if the divorce or separation agreement is executed by December 31, 2018.

 

Alimony payments resulting from agreements executed after 2018 no longer have to be reported due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) that Congress signed into law on December 22, 2017. The same holds true for agreements modified after 2018 if the new version specifically states that the TCJA treatment of nonreportable alimony payments now applies.

 

If you pay alimony, rather than receiving alimony, you should report the deduction it the agreement is executed by December 31, 2018. 

 

Do I need to report alimony I received from a former spouse?
