Make support payments tax deductable.

In 1997 the tax laws were changed ending the tax deduction for child support payments. We propose to reinstate the deduction retroactive to 1997 when it was changed. 

Contrary to some opinions, most fathers (mothers also deal with this  to but in much lower numbers) struggle to make ends meet after separation and divorce. Child support guidelines do not currently take into account the cost of living where the payer resides. As well, in order to have parenting time and over night stays the payer must maintain a residence with enough bedrooms for everyone even if they are only there 4 nights a month. 

This tax deduction is not the gold at the end of the rainbow, but it will help make it a little easier to manage financially while dealing with the time away from your children.
