DC: No Joint Tax Filling for Gay Couples
A year after a Public Advocate initiated inquiry resulted in the IRS announcing that the so-called "marriages" being entered into by gay-couples in places like San Francisco and Massachusetts would not be legally recognized by the IRS for filling purposes, Washington DC has issued a similar ruling.
The city has announced that, because of the IRS decision, homosexual couples will not be allowed to file jointly because under DC law a couple cannot file a joint return with the district unless they have also filed a joint return with the IRS.
