Child Support Tax Implications

In general, child support payments are not taxable or deductible from income tax returns. However, depending on child custody arrangements and the amount of time allotted for visitation by the non-custodial parent, child support payments may be eligible for certain tax exemptions.

As the residential custodial parent, you may be eligible for child care tax credit depending on the age of your child and whether or not any dependents you list on your tax return are physically or mentally handicapped.

If you are getting a divorce and wish to understand how you can exercise your financial rights as it concerns child support payments, it would be wise to speak to an experienced child support attorney who can help you achieve your goals and protect your interests.
