I deducted $6,000 for the spousal maintenance I paid in 2011. I deducted the $12,000 for the spousal maintenance I paid in 2012. To date I have paid her $10,000 in spousal maintenance in 2013. The divorce will be final before the end of the month and the remaining 5 years of spousal maintenance ($60,000) is included in the settlement. The settlement classifies the $60,000 portion as maintenance. How much "alimony paid" can I deduct on my 2013 federal income tax return?
