Oklahoma Tax Commission Returns Same Sex Couple Payments

 

TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ The Oklahoma Tax Commission has returned payments to fewer than 10 same-sex couples after rejecting amended tax forms that had claimed married status.
 
The Tulsa World reports that the tax forms were submitted after the federal Internal Revenue Service in August announced its married filing status would apply equally to married same-sex couples, regardless of where they lived. It is accepting amended filings for the past few years.
 
Married gay couples living in Oklahoma wanting to take advantage of this filing status filed jointly on the federal and state forms.
 
A state law requires Oklahoma residents to use the same filing status on state tax forms as they do on federal tax forms. But a 2004 statewide vote amended the Oklahoma Constitution to ban the recognition of same-sex marriages.
