CLEonline.com, together with the Houston Bar Association, are pleased to present a special online CLE program designed to address a variety of income tax issues that inevitably arise in a divorce including: filing statuses, personal exemptions for children, alimony, child support, Section 682 trusts, the treatment of income partitioned in the year of the divorce, the tax consequences of an award of certain assets, and innocent spouse relief. This seminar will also cover the issues that arise when at least one spouse is not a U.S. citizen. This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association on August 18, 2017. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session.

Some of the subjects for this course include:

    • Community Property & Separate Property

    • Filing Status

    • Exemptions & Bad Actors

    • Alimony, Child Support, and Recapture

    • Code § 1041 & Gain on Settlement

    • Code § 682 Spousal Support Trusts

    • Innocent Spouse Relief
