With the U.S. Supreme Court’s rulings yesterday, declaring Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional and dismissing California’s Proposition 8, many people are wondering about how this decision impacts them. The associated tax implications have a ripple effect on benefit administration for individuals and employers alike. Clients of Benelogic need not worry.
