Marcum's LGBT & Non-Traditional Family Practice Group Featured in South Florida Gay News Article "Accounting Firm Focuses on LGBT Community"
By Gideon Grudo
It's simply complicated: The LGBT community faces unequal and often unfair tax treatment all over the country, each state having created its own policies regarding same-sex couples. Now, an accounting firm has decided to help.
Starting in June, the new service from international firm Marcum, LLP will keep up-to-date with the changing slew of regulations that the LGBT community faces. And Marcum doesn't require the LGBT client to be in any kind of relationship. It'll help a person who's single, married, a registered domestic partner, divorced, or cohabiting with someone else. With offices in places ranging from Miami to Shanghai, the 1,100-employee firm wants to be a speed dial away from anyone needing help with accounting.
"Because this was unfolding in real time, there were and are no magic rules for LGBT couples," said Nanette Miller, the firm's west coast partner-in-charge of assurance services. "All of a sudden, there's this very complex environment in which LGBT couples need to manage."
