Who Gets Tax Refund In Divorce Proceedings

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

It is tax refund time, and for those of you in divorce proceedings, this becomes just one more thing to fight over.  If there a joint tax return was filed, the refund likewise, will come in the form of a check made out to both the husband and the wife.  In an ideal world, the refund proceeds should be split 50/50.  However, it gets complicated, if during the divorce proceedings, one spouse has made payments on behalf of the other and the other now owes the payor monies. 

The good news is the check will require two signatures.  If you are not happy about the way the disbursement is going, you have the power not to sign the back of the check until a judge disposes of the issue.  For more information about this or other divorce topics, call one of the divorce lawyers at ROBIN ROSHKIND, P.A. at 561 835 9091 or click on the Firm’s web site at http://www.familylawwpb.com.
