Taxation on maintenance payments to spouse

I make monthly payments to my spouse for alimony. As per the income tax rules, monthly recurring maintenance payments are taxable at the hands of the receiver. I pay the money using Demand Draft.

How do I ensure that the tax compliance happens and my spouse pay taxes as per the law of the land.
Is there a way to inform the tax authorities.?

Hey @abhishek83

You can ask your wife if she’s complying with the tax laws. In any case, you will not be liable to pay tax on the same as you both are living separately.
