I am paying my husband $5000 as a divorce settlement agreement. As it is a lump sum as opposed to monthly payments, I'm not sure if it counts as alimony or not.
If it does count as alimony, should I say that I will claim a tax deduction for this? The Georgia divorce form asks this question and I am not sure whether I should be saying I will/ will not be claiming a tax deduction on this 'alimony'.
Please advise. Thanks.
