Split 1099 for state tax deduction after divorce
Last year, my ex-wife and I filed a joint return in which we deducted state taxes as a itemized deduction. In our divorce decree, the issue of how to handle the 1099 was not discussed. I recently received the 1099 from the state in the mail and was wondering what I need to do?
Do I send her lawyer a photo copy of the 1099 and let them know that we are splitting it down the middle with each of us reporting 1/2 the amount as income for 2010?
