"Alimony in gross" is usually not taxable income but rather is a property settlement paid in installments. Perhaps the retirement was already in pay status, however, or for some other reason could not be paid directly by the administrator. You'll need to look at the exact wording of the judgment. If the judgment states that this is taxable income to you and tax deductible to your former spouse, then it is taxable.

I am receiving alimony in gross as a split of retirement. It was called this because there was no provision to continue payment after the death of the spouse. Is this income subject to Michigan income tax. Federal taxes I do pay and I am retired as well.
