No joint returns for wedded gays in DC
The Tax and Revenue Office of the District of Columbia has ruled that homo-gay couples legally married in Massachusetts are not eligible to file joint DC tax returns. The decision was based in 1996's oh-so-annoying Defense of Marriage Act, which is also used to prevent same-sex married couples from filing joint federal returns.
But don't despair newly wedded DC gays, as at least your marriage itself still hasn't been invalidated. That's next year.
