A: You can report her for not reporting the alimony. However, your husband did not report that he paid it to her, so how can you prove that she even received payments?

Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you regarding this matter.

because he gave her a check every month from our income and the checks were written to her every month for the same amount as stated in the divorce papers.

Ok. I was just checking, as the IRS will likely ask for proof. You do know that your husband could have been deducting the payments on his taxes had he reported the amounts.
