All Legal Same-Sex Marriages Will Be Recognized for Federal Tax Purposes

UPDATE (August 29, 2013): The Treasury Department and the IRS ruled that same-sex couples, legally married in jurisdictions that recognize their marriages, will be treated as married for federal tax purposes. The ruling applies regardless of whether the couple lives in a jurisdiction that recognizes same-sex marriage or a jurisdiction that does not recognize same-sex marriage.
