We are divorcing, my husband is keeping the house and refinanacing

This answer was rated:

We are divorcing, my husband is keeping the house and refinanacing and I will be getting $25,000 in equity. Is this considered income or would I have to pay a sales tax?

Because this is a part of the divorce settlement, it is not considered income of any kind to you. You will not have to report it or pay sales tax, income tax, or any other type of tax related to this transaction.
