Is alimony still considered alimony (for IRS purposes) if it's paid through NJ Child support probation? I've been electronically transferring alimony we agreed on in the PSA. Her attorney wants it paid through child support probation. Our divorce PSA agreement strictly states my support is "Limited Duration Support" and is taxable to her and deductible to me and it isn't child support and it ends at either of ours death. It also states that no one pays child support. But does this change anything? Will the IRS give me hell suggesting that it's now child support?
