IRS will treat same-sex marriages the same as heterosexual ones

According to news sources, the IRS has decided to recognize same sex marriages no differently than heterosexual marriages, regardless of whether the couple’s state of residence recognizes the marriage.  This will open up many benefits (and many disadvantages) for single gender couples, for example the ability to file married filing jointly and married filing seperately.

I am sure there will be plenty more about this later so stay tuned.
