IRS: Gay married couples can now file joint federal tax returns regardless of what state they live in
The IRS has ruled that since the U.S. Supreme Court recently struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender couples who married in states that allow those marriages, can file joint federal income tax returns regardless of what state they wind up living in after becoming married. The ruling does not allow them to file joint income tax returns in states that do not recognize their marriages.
