As almost all matrimonial cases have significant tax ramifications, divorce attorneys and accountants must possess a heightened understanding of the potential tax impact that divorce and separation proceedings may have on their clients. Join experienced matrimonial attorney Steven Gassman for a detailed exploration of the tax aspects of divorce and separation, including the tax treatment of alimony and maintenance payments, marital property transfers, and capital gains and losses. Beginning with an explanation of the six mandatory rules for deducting spousal support payments, Mr. Gassman elucidates the IRS’s new record keeping requirements for parties involved in property transfers, and reviews the four different kinds of filing statuses for taxpayers. Moreover, Mr. Gassman discusses a number of important issues which may affect the tax liability of divorcing parties, such as the Assignment of Income Doctrine, Innocent Spouse Relief, the dependency exemption, and legal and accounting fees. Demonstrating a meticulous grasp on the tax implications of separation and divorce, Mr. Gassman provides invaluable guidance for attorneys seeking guidance on how to help their clients through these difficult and often costly proceedings.
