Is pre-divorce maintenance taxable?

I am in the middle of a divorce. I’m separated now and have been receiving "temporary maintenance" since November, 2005. Do I have to report and pay taxes on this amount on my separate income tax return for 2006, or only for the amount I receive after the divorce is final?

Spousal support received before the divorce is final is also taxable income. Alimony can be paid based on a divorce or separation agreement.
