Divorce penalty? Tax reform could shrink alimony for ex-spouses


Divorce penalty could shrink alimonyAlimony payments mandated by divorce agreements could lose their beneficial tax treatment.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, unveiled on Thursday, includes a provision to kill the deduction that taxpayers get for making such payments to an ex-spouse.
