My husband and I had a wedding in Austin in May 2006. We got legally married in Santa Barbara in November 2013. This was the first year we filed taxes jointly: married filing jointly. Hooray for equal rights! And we've paid more in taxes in 2013 than any other year. The marriage penalty
feels very real!
QOTD: "Multiple factors are involved, but in general, in the current U.S. system, single-income married couple usually benefits from filing as a married couple, while dual-income married couples are often penalized."
Key takeaway: gay marriage is good for U.S. tax revenue.
You're welcome America.
