That depends a little on when the divorce was finalized.

For deductible alimony, you'll find the all the relevant input fields by following these steps below:

  1. Go to Deductions > Adjustments to Income;
  2. Click on Less Common Scenarios;
  3. On the line for Alimony Paid, click on the box under Taxpayer or Spouse, as applicable; and
  4. Scroll across to make all the applicable entries.

You must be in that class where the instructor gave you a sample return to solve that involves alimony.
