It may be the Halloween season, but there’s nothing scary about the situation in New Jersey for same-sex couples ready to take advantage of tax, estate, and social security benefits following the state Supreme Court lifting of the marriage ban.

Her South Carolina income tax return will be another matter, because of the state's constitutional prohibition against treating her marriage as legal. She and her wife, Daena Petersen, will probably need to create dummy federal tax returns used only to fill out separate state tax forms, on which they will each declare themselves single.

In some instances, she said, couples might find they pay more in taxes by filing jointly—and so it’s necessary to run through the projections with an advisor.
