I had to pay my ex-spouse a portion of my retirement before DFAS began automaticallty deducting it from my check. How/where do I claim what I paid her on my taxes?

This may help. It says that payments under the USFSPA can be deducted as alimony, but only the amount awarded as property, and nothing as it pertains to support.

I would also say talk to a tax professional.

Thank you for that PDF. I have heard this view (Alimony) and 1099 MISC and also checking with Tax professional. Will update this when I know more. Thx
