Strange to be excited about a tax ruling, but I am. The Treasury Department has announced that married same-sex couples can now file jointly, even if they reside in a state that does not recognize their marriage. Read about it here.
While I'm excited, I'm also nervous. I so used to doing my taxes the same way every year, and now they will change. Plus, I get mine done like two months before Michael usually does. So, this will be a new source of anxiety.
And, we'll still have to file separately on the state level, so I guess we'll have to prepare individual federal returns that we'll have to use for the state filing? What a pain in the ass.
