Same-sex marriage has been legal for more than three years, but many in the LGBTQ community remain confused about the tax breaks and benefits available to same-sex couples. In a March 2018 survey of 155 respondents, more than a quarter of same-sex spouses polled by Credit Karma Tax® said they were moderately confused about selecting a filing status.
Christina Taylor, Credit Karma’s senior manager of tax operations, recently joined Debt Free Guys™ on their Queer Money™ podcast to share the findings of that survey. Taylor explains why tax law can be so confusing for same-sex married couples and offers tips to make tax season less stressful. Listen to the podcast here.
