|Child support payments are not deductible. This expense could be offset by claiming a dependency exemption for the children on your tax return. This requires your ex-spouse to sign Form 8332 and give you the right to claim the children. Otherwise there is no tax relief.|
I pay $12,500 in child support to my ex-wife for two children. I make $45,000 per year without working over time. Is there some way I can get some tax break from this?
