Support payments

The following information will help you determine if the support payments that you paid or received are considered support payments and if they should be included or deducted from your income on your tax return.

If you do not have a court order or written agreement, the payments are not subject to the tax rules that apply to support payment. You cannot deduct any of the payments made and do not have to report the payments received on your tax return.
