Child Support & Taxes in Pembroke Pines

Helping Clients Receive the Help They Need

Tax issues surrounding child support payments can be complex. With the limitations put on those paying or receiving child support, it is important to know what deductions and exemptions a person is allowed. By hiring an attorney experienced in these areas, clients can understand what tax offsets are available. Consult an experienced family law attorney at the Law Offices of Jerome P. Ventura, P.A. in Pembroke Pines, FL, to learn more about the tax implications of any child support arrangements involved in your case.

Tax Status of Child Support

Child support is not a taxable event. Those making payments cannot deduct them from income, and those receiving them do not pay any associated taxes. While alimony and other family support payments may be taxed as income, child support payments are not.

Who Receives the Tax Exemption?

Since children who live at home can be marked as dependents on taxes, one question that often arises deals with who gets to claim them as a dependent. For a person to be able to claim a dependent, they must provide more than half a year’s support to that person. This is determined by counting the number of days the child spends with a parent but is not valid if the parties reach a different agreement, or if they were never married. The parties can agree to take the deduction for the child(ren) on a case by case basis.

However, the IRS has a special allowance for non-custodial parents if they provide more than half the year’s support, provided that both parties agree. IRS form 8332 can transfer the tax deduction available regarding the child(ren).

Let the family lawyer in Pembroke Pines help you ensure your child support taxes are carried out properly. Call (954) 280-6119 today.
