ARE YOU ENTITLED TO A REFUND? LEGALLY MARRIED SAME-SEX COUPLES ENTITLED TO SWEEPING TAX REFUNDS

Does the IRS owe you money?? As a result of the landmark decision in United States vs. Windsor, and the striking down of the infamous 1996 Defense against Marriage Act (DOMA), same-sex couples that are legally married in any of the fifty states, District of Columbia, U.S. territories, or a foreign country are now eligible to refunds on ALL federal tax provisions that favor married couples who qualify. This comprehensive ruling and resulting IRS policy applies to same-sex marriages regardless of which state the couple lives in or are domicile. If you are legally married to your same-sex partner contact us to capitalize on this exciting news!

Currently, fourteen states (including the District of Columbia) recognize same-sex marriage. These states are California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Washington, and Vermont. The above named states have affirmed the right for same-sex couples to marry - whether by Court decision, legislative decision, or popular vote.

A little history on marriage: The regulation of marriage has historically been a right reserved to the states, until the federal government signed DOMA into law in 1996. Once states began to affirm same-sex couples the right to marry, it was DOMA which stood in the way of their national recognition. Same-sex couples that were married in a state where it was legal, were still considered unmarried under national law, where it had become illegal. This created a marriage half-breed, so to speak. These marriages were not given the credit of federal tax benefit by the IRS thanks to DOMA.
