Divorce can be an emotional rollercoaster for the parties involved. Understanding the complications and economic effect at the tax levels reassures the taxpayers that their returns have been properly prepared. It’s your responsibility as the tax preparer to explain the tax implications of divorce, and report income and expense correctly on the individuals’ returns.

When children are involved, it can be tricky to determine which taxpayer can claim a child for certain tax provisions. Knowing how to distinguish between child support and other payments is required to properly complete the tax return. Being prepared when clients come to you in the midst of divorce can alleviate tax filing problems.
