Log Cabin Republicans Statement on Department of the Treasury/IRS Taxes Ruling

Log Cabin Republicans Statement on Department of the Treasury/IRS Taxes Ruling

Aug 29, 2013

Washington, D.C. – Earlier today, the United States Department of the Treasury and the IRS issued a ruling stating that legally married same-sex couples may file as “married” for federal purposes as long as they were married in a state that recognizes marriage equality (even if they reside in a state that does not recognize civil marriage for committed same-sex couples). In response, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo issued the following statement:

“Making the tax code simpler, fairer, and flatter is something Log Cabin Republicans has long advocated. With their ruling today, the Department of the Treasury and the IRS took a major step in that direction. Married same-sex couples can now breathe a little easier knowing that the labyrinthine web of red tape, confusion, and frustration that loomed over the heads of honest gay Americans in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s DOMA decision has now been lifted.”
