Upon divorce I will presumably loose my married persons allowance. Will this have a significant difference on my tax.

I have a gross salary of C £31500. Also if I am paying spoucal maintenance will that be tax deductable?

maintenance isnt tax deductable.

married couples allowance is only paid (once you claim it) to couples where one spouse was born before 6/4/1935 so there are relatively few people still in receipt of it.

guessing that you are not over 75 and still working, you never had it to lose anyway. | 02.11.11 @ 14:34

Exactly as Darren reports it - very unlikely there is any married couples allowance to lose as this has not been in existence for many years now. Only those born before 6th April 1935 remain eligible. | 02.12.11 @ 13:47
