Historically, spousal maintenance, (aka alimony) was tax-deductible for the paying spouse and taxable income for the receiving spouse. The tax overhaul resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act changed things such that, effective January 1, 2019, spousal maintenance in Colorado will not be a deduction for the paying spouse, nor will the recipient spouse be taxed. The new law does not affect any divorce agreement executed prior to December 31, 2018.

To learn more about the 2019 changes to spousal maintenance law, including the residual effect for tax implications, child custody modification, or any Family Law related matter, please contact Robert Pomper or Ally Wetzler for a free consultation.
