IRS LAUNCHES NEW VIDEO WITH INFORMATION FOR SAME-SEX MARRIAGE FEDERAL TAX FILING


The Internal Revenue Service has released a new  video designed to provide useful tax tips to married same-sex couples.  This video is less than two minutes long and is available in English, Spanish and American Sign Language.

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE TAX FILING

The video offers answers to frequently-asked questions that will assist same-sex couples to file their federal income tax returns properly.

“Following last summer’s Supreme Court decision invalidating a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act, the IRS ruled that same-sex couples, legally married in jurisdictions that recognize their marriages, are now treated as married for federal tax purposes. The ruling applies to all federal tax provisions where marriage is a factor, including filing status, claiming personal and dependency exemptions, taking the standard deduction, employee benefits, contributing to an IRA and claiming the earned income tax credit or child tax credit.”   Visit IRS.gov   for more information
