Hi @Melanie19995,

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

@macfanboy is correct - child support payments are not required to be reported in an income tax return. You can find information about income you must declare and amounts not included as income (which includes child support payments) on our website.

 

Thanks, JodieH.

Child support received does not go into your tax return.
