Accountant's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Colorado

Accountant's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

You will report the alimony when you file your tax return. You would use Form 1040, Line 11.

You should consider making estimated quarterly tax payments during the year on this income so you will not have a tax liability when you file your tax return. Estimated tax payments are due on April 15, June 15, September 15, and January 15 of the following year.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
