I have a problem that maybe someone can help me on. I'm a Canadian working in the states and Pay U.S. Taxes. I am reqired to pay my ex wife alimony which in both Canada and the U.S. is tax Dedicutable. However my ex wife is also Canadian and doesn't have a SSN or a TIN. When I filed this year the IRS said that I had to have a SSN or TIN for my ex wife. After much mucking about we found the form and had it filed with the U.S people who sat on it for about 3 months. They then rejected the application for the TIN because it was not tax related. Does anyone have any experance with claming Alimony for a foriegn Spouse? How does one get the deduction with out a SSN or TIN? If anyone can help you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to this post. Donald L. Gover
Have you tried looking at the relevant portions of the tax treaty with Canada? There may be some guidance there. If there is, you might also try quoting it to the IRS office that denied your deduction. Sometimes we have to remind the IRS of the laws they are enforcing.--Peter
