Are you receiving spousal alimony from your ex-partner? Then you have to pay income tax over this amount because it is a source of income. You should declare the received spousal alimony in the income tax return.
Which kinds of spousal alimony should be declared?
If you were married or registered partners and you earn less than your ex-partner, you can claim spousal alimony. We listed the different kinds you have to declare here:
- The received partner alimony;
- Pay-out of alimony;
- The rent which is paid by your ex-partner for your rental property;
- Amounts received for settlement of pension rights or annuity for which the premiums are deducted;
- Notional-rental value for owner-occupiers.
- You have to declare the notional-rental value if you live in a house which is (partly) owned by your ex-partner. You have to declare the relative amount of the notional-rental value as received partner alimony.
You will probably receive child alimony if your child of up to the age of 21 is at your place most of the time. You do not have to declare child alimony in your income tax return.
