Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis Writes About How Hellish Divorce Is Going To Be Post-2018 And Why

Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR talks about the change to divorce laws in the 2017 Tax Cuts And Jobs Act which reverses a 77 year old law created to make the transition easier for the divorcing couple.

Fairhope, AL, May 23, 2019: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently published a blog on his website entitled “The IRS Is Really Messing Up Splitting Up,” in which Mr. Willis gives an overview of the new tax law relating to divorce.

According to Willis, “Divorce pre-2019 was messy but divorce post-2018 is going to be hellish.” He elaborates, “That’s due to the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act which reverses a law that was introduced 77 years ago. This law was created with the hope of freeing up more money for the divorcing couple and easing the transition from paying taxes jointly to paying separately.”

“With divorce more popular than ever in the U.S.,” says Willis, “this new tax law is really going to make a bigger mess for both parties in the divorce.” He offers a few statistics, “According to the American Psychological Association, currently, approximately 50% of first-time marriages end in divorce and the divorce rate for subsequent marriages is even higher.”

Willis explains, “The heart of the new law is that, for divorces finalized after December 31, 2018, it makes alimony non-tax-deductible for the payer and non-taxable for the recipient. This eliminates the existing tax incentive for bigger support payments.”
