Today, the Supreme Court ruled that denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples violates the Constitution. The ruling will have profound impacts on millions of same sex couples in the 13 states which must now join all states in lifting bans on marriage between same sex couples. One consequence for these couples is the significant reduction in burden to prepare their taxes. Where previously, they might have had to prepare as many as five tax returns to comply with federal and state requirements, they will now only have to prepare two.
