Many gay and
lesbian couples have been - or will be – affect by recent changes the
Internal Revenue Service (IRS) made regarding tax treatment for same-sex
couples in community property states, including Washington.
The IRS has
announced that it will apply community property tax treatment registered
to domestic partners and same-sex spouses in Washington State to reflect
"income-splitting" – in the same way that it applies those laws
to different-sex married couples who file their federal income tax
Remember: If you are
one of the people these new rules affect, the IRS is requiring you and
your partner or spouse to "income-split" on your 2011 federal
income tax filings due April 17, 2012.
Do these new community property
and income-splitting rules apply to you?
Need help understanding the IRS
changes and how file correctly and advantageously?
