Alimony

My question is about Alimony, I am court ordered to pay my ex-wife $925.00 a month in Alimony. It is split up like this; I send her a check for $500.00 and sent a check of $425.00 to the federal bankruptcy courts. Even though we were both responsible for the bankruptcy the judge order me to pay the bankruptcy as part of my alimony. So do I file my alimony as $925.00 per month on my federal return or do I just claim the $500.00 a month that she receives.


No one here seems to be able to answer my question so I am going to post what two different tax agencys told me.

Dear TaxACT(R) Customer:
If your divorce decree recognizes the bankruptcy payment as alimony, then you should include the whole amount paid for alimony on your tax return.

Taxaid answer:
If your divorce decree, and the court, designates that you pay alimony to your ex of $925, then that is what you can deduct. Apparently because of the bankruptcy proceedings the court ordered that you pay $425 of your wife's alimony directly to the court to assure payments on HER share of the bankruptcy.

I wish to inform you that you may file for modification of child and spousal support by showing to court changed circumstances and you may show your financial hardship. As regards generally you have child support amount due. In this regard you may argue that you have asked bank account and made reasonable efforts to pay but by refusing your ex has implied that she may not need amount or has foregone amount.
