Hi Michael, I'm sorry for the 41 year marriage dissolving. The IRS considers any income to an individual taxable including maintenance-as you know. The only way it would not be taxable is if the business agreed that they would pay the tax on the support checks. Hope things work out for the best, ***** ***** rate me or please let me know if you require more information.
