You will receive a Form 1099-R for the full amount of the distribution. This amount must be reported on your return. You will report the 45% you gave to your ex-wife as alimony. This will reduce your Adjusted Gross Income to the amount you actually kept. You should advise your ex that she must report this amount as alimony income.
