Deduction of Spousal Support (Alimony) at Source

The Deduction of Spousal Support (Alimony) at Source provides spousal support payroll deductions for those paying spousal support.

Many people find themselves paying support out of their net paycheques, which is often difficult, if not impossible, to afford. Correcting the amount your employer withholds at source can provide instant relief for your budget, instead of waiting to file your income tax return in April.

To do this, you must fill out two forms, one for Revenu Québec and another for the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Provide them to your employer, along with a copy of the judgment by which you agreed, or were ordered, to pay spousal support. (This does not apply to child support, which is not deductible).
