The US Treasury announced that domestic partners will be allowed to claim the “Married Filing Joint” status for federal income tax returns for the 2013 tax year, if the couple has a valid marriage license from a state that recognizes their union, even if they do not currently live in that state. In addition, the couple may be eligible to file amended returns to claim additional deductions and possible refunds for the prior 3 tax years.
If you or your partner is affected by this tax ruling, our firm can assist you in filing your 2013 tax returns and any prior tax returns that you may qualify to amend.
This also means that your 2013 tax situation may need to be reviewed BEFORE the end of this tax year, so that you can take full advantage of the tax code changes.
Don’t wait until December to see how you are affected……pick up the phone and call us today!
