TMFExRo wrote:As was previously noted, the child support is not deductible and the alimony is. Only the custodial parent can claim a credit based on child care expenses, so assuming your son does not have custody, he will receive no tax benefit from those payments.The way around this is to rewrite the court order to delete the provision for day care monies and add it back in as spousal support. The son gets a deduction for the extra spousal support and the custodial mom gets a day care tax credit. Of course, it's a lot better to do this as part of a modification, because if you do it right now, it will look like you're trying to do an end run around taxes.Which, of course, you are.... <grin>CCSand
