Special Alert Re Tax Considerations in Divorce Cases Relating to the New Tax Act
Currently spousal support (alimony) is tax deductible in most instances to the party paying it and not taxable to the party receiving it. Recently, under the new tax act, the law changes with regard to the deductibility of spousal support or alimony in divorces completed after 2018. This will be an important consideration in determining whether one should file for divorce or whether to complete said divorce in 2018.
Cyber Security Insurance Claims for Individuals and Businesses
Currently there has been an explosion of cyber security insurance claims. The amount of fraud perpetrated utilizing devices interfacing with the internet has become rampant. Cyber security scams have become unbelievably sophisticated and have caused massive damages to businesses, as well as individuals. Insurance companies have issued over time crime coverage policies which include coverage for cyber security. The insurance companies are now fighting these claims vigorously. Our office is working to make sure our clients receive the full amount due from their insurance carriers as a result of these losses. Insurance companies, in an effort to limit their losses, have sought to deny coverage under their crime policies or instead classify cyber security crimes under various endorsements which carry much lower limits than their crime policies. This area of the law is continuing to develop and one in which we are highly involved.
