Posted on 08/29/2013 12:07:12 PM PDT by GIdget2004
The government is issuing the regulations needed to allow gay couples married in states that recognize same-sex marriages to file joint federal tax returns.
Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew says the new rules will provide "clear, coherent tax filing guidance for all legally married same-sex couples nationwide."
Lew said the regulations also make clear that legally married same-sex couples will be able to move freely throughout the country and their federal tax filing status will not change.

All this with no congressional oversight on as matter not yet settled nationally.
No......There is more! What is it? Gay tax credits? Special gay housing credits? What are we not being told?
Yes, and I would be willing to bet, that they will get more tax breaks than Herero sexual married couples.
So how does that happen, if these people move to states who do not recognize their "marriages"?
What one EO can create another can destroy
Presumably they would file a joint Federal return and separate State returns.
I was also wondering how it will work in states that don’t support gay marriage, if they filed their federal return as “married, filing jointly”, then how will they file their state returns? Turbo Tax is going to have to come out with a whole new product “Deluxe Homo”.
IRS making up RULES as they go along. Not legal period!
If the Federal government is recognizing same sex marriages and a state (like Texas) doesn’t have state income tax, why would the couple need to reside in a state that recognizes same sex marriages since the state isn’t involved, the Fed is?
Why this vicious prejudice against non-legally married couples? This is worse than any racism, homophobianism , anti - bestiality or anti- pedophile laws. I demand my lifestyle and personal sexuality not be denigrated.
NLMC’s deserve, no demand equality.
...and where is this authority coming from -Obama’s magical ass?
So higher income “married” gays now get to experience the federal “marriage penalty”?
The liberals are making this up as they go along. The liberals don’t care if they move to a state which doesn’t allow homosexual marriage. In such a case, the fact that they once lived in such a state, or were married in such a state, whether residents of that state or not, is good enough for the liberals.
Because what is coming is “full faith and credit”. This is a war lost.
Someone posted yesterday, and I agree, that many delude themselves that we live in a center right Nation. We do not. We are center left and like a wagon down a hill are heading Left Left Left. I don’t think some appreciate how far gone we are and there is no coming back. Oh we’ll win a little bit here and there. We may even take back the senate in (2014 though in 2016 we’ll lose 7-10 seats). But demographics and GOP ignorance have killed us.
There is no going back. And yes, I wont quit fighting either, but my America is gone forever. And so is yours.
This will throw everyone for a loop: If you are in a gay marriage, then how do you prove to me that both parties are gay! It cannot be done, there is no “gay” gene. If both parties say they are gay, it simply means they practice gay behaviours. But certainly one can practice gay behaviors and still not be gay. Since when does a personal preference allow one access to the institution of marriage?
To my mind, what is coming is 'full faith and credit when the liberals say so'. There's no way you'll ever see concealed carry, to cite just one example, honored across state lines. That's the most discouraging part of all.
You are quite right though. The lack of a true opposition party at the national level spells impending disaster. I'm not going to quit fighting either, secure in the knowledge that God wins in the end.
Setting the stage for an “equal protection” Supreme Court ruling forcing all states to recognize poofter partnerships.
