Unallocated Alimony and Pendente Lite ruling
I was divorced in June of 08. My final settlement agreement stipuates we follow a pendente lite order until the jointly owned former marital resodence is sold. The PL states I pay the mortgage, taxes an home equity line directy. Plus I pay her 2000 which is unallocated.
My question is what portion of this is alimony?
I filed as follows:
50% interest of 1st, 2nd and taxes is alimony. (We each deduct 50% of interest and taxes)
2000/month is alimony
I did not consider any of the money paid to her as child support.
She claims 0 is alimony since it is all unallocated.
Does anyone know how the IRS treates this? What about NJ state taxes?
