In 2019, alimony will be different for newly divorced couples in Georgia, at least when it comes to taxes. Going forward from Jan. 1, alimony payments will not be tax-deductible for the ex-spouse making payments. Also, the recipient will no longer have to list payments as taxable income. For couples not able to get their divorce in before the new rules take effect, it may still be possible to minimize financial burdens after a split.
