The guidance given on this site in FAQ about Same Sex Marriages is now wholly inaccurate as it relates to the Federal return: "How do I prepare a return if I am in a RDP, civil union, or same-sex marriage? Article ID: GEN12380 The federal government and many state governments do not recognize registered domestic partnerships (RDPs), civil unions, or same-sex marriages and therefore give same-sex couples no other choice than to file single tax returns.". I was legally married in the State Of New York and will file a Federal Return as Married Filing Jointly. I cannot file that status, however, in the State I live in (Arizona) and earned my income in. How will Turbo Tax be handling this situation? I want to continue to use Turbo Tax Online as I have for years, but want to know that these situations will be handled first. Until the overturn of DOMA, it wasn't an issue.... I had to file single everywhere, as their (now outdated) FAQ states. But that's not the case now, I can at least take advantage of the MFJ status on the Fed side.
