Same Sex Couples
2013 was a watershed year for equality in the United States! In June 2013, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned part of The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
This has now allowed same sex couples the opportunity to marry on the federal level and to provide these couples with over 1,100 other federal benefits.
We work with same sex couples all over the country. This creates challenging tax situations, as some states may or may not recognize same-sex marriage at this time.
What does this mean to couples?
Should we get married?
Does this apply to being a Registered Domestic Partner (RDP)?
The above is just a sample of the items to be considered under this ground breaking ruling.
