Payments deductible as alimony?
In the divorce agreement client is required pay mortgage, property taxes, insurance and renovation/maintenance cost of joint property where the ex spouse will reside. Are the payments for renovations and / or maintenance items deductible by client as alimony? Additionally the divorce decree states that no alimony will be paid until the house is sold. The document does not discuss the inclusion or non-inclusion of the other payments as alimony.
