BRAD MERRIMAN – TACDNEWS /JOURNALIST – Today the Treasury Department released its decision in regards to how the Department will treat same sex married couples nationwide. The Treasury Department has decided that same sex couples will now garner the same rights afforded any other married couples, regardless of the state they reside. Many states still do not recognize same sex marriage, however with the overturn of DOMA by the Supreme Court earlier this year mixed with today’s decision, may open the door for other states to begin to recognize same sex marriages.
Prior to this spring, the IRS did not recognize same sex marriages until the Supreme Court in June overturned the Defense of Marriage act.
