I know alimony reached and executed before 12/31/2018 is deductible. Is it still reportable by the recipient as income?

I know alimony reached and executed before 12/31/2018 is deductible. Is it still reportable by the recipient as income?

Yes. The law changes only for "divorces executed or modified after 2018". 

If a pre-2019 divorce is not modified, the old rules apply: the payer can deduct payments and the recipient must pay tax on them."
