As a same-sex couple, what filing status should we choose on our state return?
The 2015 Supreme Court decision now requires all legally-married same-sex couples to file as married (either jointly or separately) on their state tax returns.
However, we don't yet know when the changes go into effect, if the changes will be retroactive, or if couples who already filed can amend. As soon as we start getting answers, we'll post them here.
- Is it better for a married couple to file jointly or separately?
- How does the June 26 Supreme Court same-sex marriage ruling affect tax returns?
