Delaware County Divorce Lawyer answers: Is the marriage tax loophole worth it?

Share This Press Release

Arik Benari, a divorce lawyer in Delaware County, comments on the newest trend: getting a divorce not because of personal reasons but because of financial ones.

Divorce is a hot topic for many industries, including accounting. Certain plans in Washington may make it a financially smart decision to get a divorce. So-called “strategic divorces” may benefit those who would pay wealth taxes in proposed plans by Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders.

“This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of this,” Arik Benari, of The Benari Law Group, which handles Delaware County divorces, says. “There were similar discussions when the 2018 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was passed.”

This act and those proposed by the Senators have a “marriage penalty,” which taxes those who file together and have at least $612,350 in taxable income during 2019 would push them into the 37% tax bracket. As a result, some couples are considering divorce simply to save on their taxes.

“Divorces get messy when you include finances,” Benari continues, “which is why it seems strange that people would consider getting them because of finances. Of course, there may be other benefits for spouses, such as qualifying for Medicaid and children applying for student loans. Still, people do not realize how deep divorces go – you could impede your retirement benefits, social status, insurance coverage, and business interests. To save a couple of hundred dollars a year, it just doesn’t seem worth it to me.”
