Requirements for deducting alimony payments on taxes

When two people in Michigan separate or get a divorce, one might owe alimony to the other. While alimony is usually tax-deductible, there are several conditions that must be in place for a person to claim that deduction. The parties must live separately, and the separation or divorce agreement must not specify that the payment cannot be taxed or deducted. The arrangement must end on the death of the person receiving the payments. Finally, the alimony must be part of the separation or divorce agreement.
