Tip | Pay off the partner alimony this year!
Tax tip 4
If your income is taxed in bracket 2, the partner alimony to be paid is deductible at the maximum deduction rate of 46%. Do you choose not to buy off the partner maintenance and pay this in 2021 (when your income has decreased)? Then, the partner alimony is only deductible at 37.10% (rate of tax bracket 1 in 2021). Therefore, it is tax advantageous to take this into account if you have to pay partner alimony.
In addition, buying off partner alimony can be fiscally advantageous if it causes you to fall just below the tax-free rate on the 1st of January. This prevents you from having to pay tax on your savings.
Of course, buying off partner alimony must be done in consultation with your ex-partner. This way, you prevent disagreements.
