Irs tax form 940 for 2012 gov/pub504. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Example 1. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 In November 1984, you and your former spouse executed a written separation agreement. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 In February 1985, a decree of divorce was substituted for the written separation agreement. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The decree of divorce did not change the terms for the alimony you pay your former spouse. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The decree of divorce is treated as executed before 1985. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Alimony payments under this decree are not subject to the rules for payments under instruments executed after 1984. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Example 2. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Assume the same facts as in Example 1 except that the decree of divorce changed the amount of the alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 In this example, the decree of divorce is not treated as executed before 1985. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The alimony payments are subject to the rules for payments under instruments executed after 1984. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Alimony requirements. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   A payment to or for a spouse under a divorce or separation instrument is alimony if the spouses do not file a joint return with each other and all the following requirements are met. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The payment is in cash. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The instrument does not designate the payment as not alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Spouses legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance are not members of the same household. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 There is no liability to make any payment (in cash or property) after the death of the recipient spouse. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The payment is not treated as child support. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Each of these requirements is discussed below. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Cash payment requirement. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   Only cash payments, including checks and money orders, qualify as alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The following do not qualify as alimony.

Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Execution of a debt instrument by the payer. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The use of the payer's property. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payments to a third party. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   Cash payments to a third party under the terms of your divorce or separation instrument can qualify as cash payments to your spouse. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 See Payments to a third party under General Rules, earlier. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   Also, cash payments made to a third party at the written request of your spouse may qualify as alimony if all the following requirements are met. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The payments are in lieu of payments of alimony directly to your spouse. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The written request states that both spouses intend the payments to be treated as alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 You receive the written request from your spouse before you file your return for the year you made the payments. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payments designated as not alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   You and your spouse can designate that otherwise qualifying payments are not alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 You do this by including a provision in your divorce or separation instrument that states the payments are not deductible as alimony by you and are excludable from your spouse's income. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 For this purpose, any instrument (written statement) signed by both of you that makes this designation and that refers to a previous written separation agreement is treated as a written separation agreement (and therefore a divorce or separation instrument). Irs tax form 940 for 2012 If you are subject to temporary support orders, the designation must be made in the original or a later temporary support order. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   Your spouse can exclude the payments from income only if he or she attaches a copy of the instrument designating them as not alimony to his or her return. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The copy must be attached each year the designation applies. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Spouses cannot be members of the same household. Irs tax form 940 for 2012    Payments to your spouse while you are members of the same household are not alimony if you are legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 A home you formerly shared is considered one household, even if you physically separate yourselves in the home. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   You are not treated as members of the same household if one of you is preparing to leave the household and does leave no later than 1 month after the date of the payment. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Exception. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   If you are not legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance, a payment under a written separation agreement, support decree, or other court order may qualify as alimony even if you are members of the same household when the payment is made. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Table 18-1. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Alimony Requirements (Instruments Executed After 1984) Payments ARE alimony if all of the following are true: Payments are NOT alimony if any of the following are true: Payments are required by a divorce or separation instrument.

Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payer and recipient spouse file a joint return with each other. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payment is in cash (including checks or money orders). Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payment is: Not in cash, A noncash property settlement, Spouse's part of community income, or To keep up the payer's property. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payment is not designated in the instrument as not alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payment is designated in the instrument as not alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Spouses legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance are not members of the same household. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Spouses legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance are members of the same household. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payments are not required after death of the recipient spouse. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payments are required after death of the recipient spouse. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payment is not treated as child support. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Payment is treated as child support. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 These payments are deductible by the payer and includible in income by the recipient. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 These payments are neither deductible by the payer nor includible in income by the recipient. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Liability for payments after death of recipient spouse. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   If any part of payments you make must continue to be made for any period after your spouse's death, that part of your payments is not alimony, whether made before or after the death. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 If all of the payments would continue, then none of the payments made before or after the death are alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   The divorce or separation instrument does not have to expressly state that the payments cease upon the death of your spouse if, for example, the liability for continued payments would end under state law. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Example. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 You must pay your former spouse $10,000 in cash each year for 10 years. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Your divorce decree states that the payments will end upon your former spouse's death. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 You must also pay your former spouse or your former spouse's estate $20,000 in cash each year for 10 years. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The death of your spouse would not terminate these payments under state law. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The $10,000 annual payments may qualify as alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The $20,000 annual payments that do not end upon your former spouse's death are not alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Substitute payments. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   If you must make any payments in cash or property after your spouse's death as a substitute for continuing otherwise qualifying payments before the death, the otherwise qualifying payments are not alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 To the extent that your payments begin, accelerate, or increase because of the death of your spouse, otherwise qualifying payments you made may be treated as payments that were not alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Whether or not such payments will be treated as not alimony depends on all the facts and circumstances. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Example 1. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Under your divorce decree, you must pay your former spouse $30,000 annually. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The payments will stop at the end of 6 years or upon your former spouse's death, if earlier. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Your former spouse has custody of your minor children. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The decree provides that if any child is still a minor at your spouse's death, you must pay $10,000 annually to a trust until the youngest child reaches the age of majority. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The trust income and corpus (principal) are to be used for your children's benefit. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 These facts indicate that the payments to be made after your former spouse's death are a substitute for $10,000 of the $30,000 annual payments. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Of each of the $30,000 annual payments, $10,000 is not alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Example 2. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Under your divorce decree, you must pay your former spouse $30,000 annually. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The payments will stop at the end of 15 years or upon your former spouse's death, if earlier. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The decree provides that if your former spouse dies before the end of the 15-year period, you must pay the estate the difference between $450,000 ($30,000 × 15) and the total amount paid up to that time. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 For example, if your spouse dies at the end of the tenth year, you must pay the estate $150,000 ($450,000 − $300,000). Irs tax form 940 for 2012 These facts indicate that the lump-sum payment to be made after your former spouse's death is a substitute for the full amount of the $30,000 annual payments. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 None of the annual payments are alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The result would be the same if the payment required at death were to be discounted by an appropriate interest factor to account for the prepayment. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Child support. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   A payment that is specifically designated as child support or treated as specifically designated as child support under your divorce or separation instrument is not alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The amount of child support may vary over time. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Child support payments are not deductible by the payer and are not taxable to the recipient. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Specifically designated as child support. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   A payment will be treated as specifically designated as child support to the extent that the payment is reduced either: On the happening of a contingency relating to your child, or At a time that can be clearly associated with the contingency. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 A payment may be treated as specifically designated as child support even if other separate payments are specifically designated as child support. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Contingency relating to your child. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   A contingency relates to your child if it depends on any event relating to that child. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 It does not matter whether the event is certain or likely to occur. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Events relating to your child include the child's: Becoming employed, Dying, Leaving the household, Leaving school, Marrying, or Reaching a specified age or income level. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Clearly associated with a contingency. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   Payments that would otherwise qualify as alimony are presumed to be reduced at a time clearly associated with the happening of a contingency relating to your child only in the following situations. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The payments are to be reduced not more than 6 months before or after the date the child will reach 18, 21, or local age of majority. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The payments are to be reduced on two or more occasions that occur not more than 1 year before or after a different one of your children reaches a certain age from 18 to 24. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 This certain age must be the same for each child, but need not be a whole number of years. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 In all other situations, reductions in payments are not treated as clearly associated with the happening of a contingency relating to your child. Irs tax form 940 for 2012   Either you or the IRS can overcome the presumption in the two situations above. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 This is done by showing that the time at which the payments are to be reduced was determined independently of any contingencies relating to your children. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 For example, if you can show that the period of alimony payments is customary in the local jurisdiction, such as a period equal to one-half of the duration of the marriage, you can overcome the presumption and may be able to treat the amount as alimony. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 How To Deduct Alimony Paid You can deduct alimony you paid, whether or not you itemize deductions on your return. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 You must file Form 1040. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 You cannot use Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Enter the amount of alimony you paid on Form 1040, line 31a. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 In the space provided on line 31b, enter your spouse's social security number (SSN) or individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). Irs tax form 940 for 2012 If you paid alimony to more than one person, enter the SSN or ITIN of one of the recipients. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Show the SSN or ITIN and amount paid to each other recipient on an attached statement. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Enter your total payments on line 31a. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 You must provide your spouse's SSN or ITIN. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 If you do not, you may have to pay a $50 penalty and your deduction may be disallowed. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 For more information on SSNs and ITINs, see Social Security Number (SSN) in chapter 1. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 How To Report Alimony Received Report alimony you received as income on Form 1040, line 11. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 You cannot use Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 You must give the person who paid the alimony your SSN or ITIN. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 If you do not, you may have to pay a $50 penalty. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Recapture Rule If your alimony payments decrease or end during the first 3 calendar years, you may be subject to the recapture rule. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 If you are subject to this rule, you have to include in income in the third year part of the alimony payments you previously deducted. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Your spouse can deduct in the third year part of the alimony payments he or she previously included in income. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The 3-year period starts with the first calendar year you make a payment qualifying as alimony under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance or a written separation agreement. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 Do not include any time in which payments were being made under temporary support orders. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The second and third years are the next 2 calendar years, whether or not payments are made during those years. Irs tax form 940 for 2012 The reasons for a reduction or end of alimony payments that can require a recapture include: A change in your divorce or separation instrument, A failure to make timely payments, A reduction in your ability to provide support, or A reduction in your spouse's support needs.
