The Unexpected Tax Consequences of a Divorce

Explore:  Divorce

Divorce has significant tax consequences, the most important of which is that you can no longer file joint tax returns. Many couples who have filed jointly for several years forget the tax benefit they’ve been receiving until they have to file as single—then the financial reality of the situation sets in.

Divorce lawyers who are skilled at their job are usually able to work with a couple to achieve the maximum benefit from an otherwise non-beneficial tax situation. There are also ways to structure a divorce settlement that will make taxes owed less difficult for each party to handle.
