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

SOLVEDby TurboTax4036Updated 1 month ago

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.
