What Are Some Tax Implications of Divorce?

Understanding How Divorce Affects Taxes

The tax ramifications of divorce are key. When it comes to divorce, think logically not emotionally, and this is a perfect example.

There are implications of tax issues when it comes to divorce:

  • Filing status is an issue
  • The exemptions for the dependents is an issue
  • Alimony is always an issue because it’s taxable income if you’re the recipient
  • When there’s a home sale, you are going to have capital gains tax issues
  • There’s the liability of past joint returns
  • There’s the issue of the transfer of retirement funds through QDROs

You need to look at the tax issues because it may reduce what you think you’re getting. You need to be financially prepared and be educated to all the issues when it comes to divorce.
