Turbo Tax Gives Up On Trying To Handle Married Gays’ Tax Returns

Turbo Tax, the software program that’s having trouble handling your queer marriages and domestic partnerships because of all these confusing state and federal filing requirements, is no longer even going to pretend it can get a handle on what paperwork needs to be filed for America’s gays. “Turbo Tax had said that their March 10th update would allow those of us in Domestic Partnerships in community property states file with their software,” relays Reddit user jbhelms. “They have now reversed that and said you can either do it by hand in the software or hire a professional for more complicated issues. I called this morning and they issued me a refund without any issues.” So a refund is nice. What would be nicer: simplified (and non-discriminatory) tax rules for gay couples across the land, so e-filing really is as easy as a couple of clicks. But if even Tim Geitner can’t figure this stuff out, what hope do us peons have?
