>How unfair is this?
Gay couples often pay higher taxes because they don’t get the federal tax benefits that go with marriage. And for couples in state-sanctioned domestic partnerships, civil unions or same-sex marriages, filing federal income taxes can involve doing three sets of paperwork instead of one.
What do you think? Shouldn’t this be enough to sway people to support gay marriages or civil unions? You would think that in this anti-tax culture more people would be more practical. But, I guess hipocrasy overrides practicality in this country.
