I am divorced. can spousal support and child support be a deduction?

If you are the one receiving the alimony payments, see here instead for how to enter. 

Does alimony count as income?


You can use the instructions below to enter your alimony that you paid out.

Child support received by you or paid by you is considered nontaxable income, so you do not need to report it on your federal tax return. 

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