Utah State Tax Commission Won't Recognize Same-Sex Marriages

STATE OFFICIALS ARE NOTIFYING GAY COUPLES THIS WEEK, UTAH'S POLICY -- ABOUT JOINT TAX RETURNS -- IS UNCHANGED, DESPITE RECENT FEDERAL RECOGNITION OF SAME-SEX COUPLES.

THE UTAH STATE TAX COMMISSION SAYS, SAME-SEX COUPLES -- WHOSE MARRIAGE MAY BE RECOGNIZED IN ANOTHER STATE -- ARE STILL REQUIRED TO FILE SEPARATE UTAH TAX RETURNS.

FEDERAL OFFICIALS ANNOUNCED IN AUGUST, GAY COUPLES COULD FILE JOINT FEDERAL TAX RETURNS EVEN IF THEY RESIDE IN STATES THAT DO NOT RECOGNIZE SAME-SEX MARRIAGES.
