Am I allowed to deduct legal feels on my tax return? I am getting a divorce and would like to know if I can deduct attorney fees.
No, in this case you may not deduct attorney fees. Legal fees you paid for a divorce are considered personal expenses. You may only deduct legal fees related to doing or keep your job. However, you may be eligible to deduct attorney fees associated with receiving alimony or receiving property. These fees may be deductible because they will increase the seeker’s taxable income.
You cannot deduct the costs of counseling, litigations, or personal advice
