Who pays taxes on spousal support in Florida? The payer or the payee?

Generally, the person receiving the alimony will pay the taxes on the alimony because they have to declare it as income on their income taxes. The person paying the alimony gets to deduct that from their income, and therefore they're not paying taxes on it. However, it's always important to talk to your accountant to make sure that you can deduct or that you have to add this to your taxable income when filing your taxes.
