Are alimony payments taxable?

If the divorce or separation agreement mandating the alimony payments was entered into by December 31, 2018, the alimony payments are taxable to the recipient and deductible by the payer.  However, if the divorce or separation agreement is made or modified on or after Jan 1, 2019, the alimony payments are not taxable to the recipient and not deductible by the payer.
