IRS recognizes same-sex couples in three states

IRS recognition of same-sex couples means major change for 2010 returns, Lambda Legal explains

The IRS has announced a major shift in how it treats certain same-sex couples who are married or are registered domestic partners in three states. For the first time, as California, Nevada and Washington registered domestic partners and California same-sex spouses fill out their federal tax returns for 2010, the IRS will recognize jointly owned community property income, the same way it does for different-sex married couples who file separate federal income tax returns.

Lambda Legal has released a short guide aimed at same-sex couples and tax professionals outlining the new rules.

The IRS will now recognize the jointly owned community property income earned by California, Nevada and Washington RDPs and California same-sex spouses, the same way it long has done for different-sex married couples who file separate federal income tax returns. Recognition of "community income" means couples each will report half of their combined income on their separate returns -- called "income-splitting" -- which can mean big savings for couples with wide disparities in income.

To download Lambda Legal's FAQ explaining the new IRS position about registered domestic partners' community property rights, please go to: www.lambdalegal.org/publications/factsheets/fs_the-irs-applies-income-splitting-community-property.html
