George and Linda are divorced and own a house from the marriage. Under the divorce decree, Linda pays George $ 5,000 per month alimony. Because the real estate market has collapsed in the area where they live, George and Linda cannot sell the house. Since they are still friends, they decide to live in separate wings of the house until the real estate market recovers. If George and Linda live together for the entire current year, can Linda claim a deduction for the alimony paid to George? In answering this case, use an online tax ser-vice with only the Internal Revenue Code database selected. State your keywords and which online tax ser-vice you used to arrive at your answer.
