By William Perez
On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court ruled that the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution requires all states in the union to license marriage between two people and requires all states to recognize marriages lawfully performed in another state or country. Regardless of each person's gender, all people have a right to marry.
"The biggest benefit is your tax return compliance has been simplified drastically," say Nanette Lee Miller, CPA, and Janis Cowhey, JD, who are both co-leaders of the Modern Family and LGBT services practice group of Marcum LLP.
