Do I need to include child support on my federal taxes?

Modified on Wed, 24 Jan 2024 at 12:16 PM

According to the IRS, child support does not count as taxable income, nor can you deduct any child support payments you make. However, a handful of states have rules that differ from the IRS. Please refer to your state website for more information.
