Thanks for the post. However, IMHO, there are more of us in the community that don't care about this than I suspect that know about this. I have been talking about imputed income (meantioned in the article) for awhile since working in the insurance industry. Since it affects the personal bottom line (money), I am at a loss as to why we are not screaming to the heavens at the blatant monetary disparity between same sex and opposite sex taxing. As the article states, married couples are not penalized for covering their spouses, but same sex couples are, essentially paying twice for health insurance for the partner. On average, a same sex couple who can not marry will pay about $3000 and up for that coverage on top of the premiums being paid for the coverage. Insurance companies are required to report this imputed income to the IRS and you must declare it on tax returns. This raises your adjusted gross income and makes you pay more in taxes than you would if you did not have your partner as a covered dependent. Talk about taxation without representation! Where is our tea party?
