Mistake made by taxpayers
Most of the taxpayers erroneously consider all payments made to their ex-mates as deductible alimony payments. For instance, taxpayers every now and again incorporate child support payments as deductible alimony. Then again, many alimony recipients don't consider the payments from their ex-life partners as taxable income, and neglect to report it. Moreover, alimony recipients commit the regular error of not announcing pay assigned as "family support" by the divorce decree. This kind of support is considered alimony income in most states.
