Tax deductibles- alimony included?

Post by dutchess » Thu, 04 Oct 2007 5:55 pm

My husband pays alimony in The Netherlands.We are wondering what the maximum amount that can be deducted per month from his taxable income.In the Netherlands this is one of the stuff we could deduct aside all other things.

We would appreciate your answers. Thanks.

Let me try and get this clear:

Your husband is paying alimony in The Netherlands to his ex-wife. He lives and works here in Singapore. Or does he work in The Netherlands?

You mean alimony according to the laws in The Netherlands, or to the laws here in Singapore?

All in all, very confusing to me...

Yes he pays alimony in The Netherlands according to the laws there. We recently moved here for his work.

What we would like to know is , could he deduct the alimony he pays to his ex wife in The Netherelands on his tax here in Sinagpore since the money he use to pay her comes from his income earned here?

I hope its understandable now :wink: Thanks

Ok, clearer now.

I am afraid here in Singapore it is not at all deductable from your income, but I am sure IRAS here (the Singapore version of the Dutch "Belastingdienst") can answer this question in a split of a second.
