Same Sex Couple Sues IRS for Refund

Posted on August 27, 2014

A same-sex married couple recently filed a lawsuit against the IRS in the United States District Court seeking a tax refund and injunctive relief. Specifically, the couple argued that the IRS unconstitutionally denied their right to claim the correct filing status and that they are entitled to a refund. What do you think?

The nonpartisan Tax Foundation released a comprehensive summary of each state’s guide to filing as a same-sex couple. The IRS policy states that gay and lesbian couples with a valid marriage certificate in their state were able to file joint federeal tax returns as on tax year 2013. More from the Tax Foundation’s 2013 filing and Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) summary here.
