On June 26, 2013, the Supreme Court in Windsor v. United States invalidated Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). What will be the implications of the Court’s decision on the application of Federal tax laws to same-sex couples?

Panelists will discuss the tax planning challenges faced by same-sex couples and examine other Federal and state laws, such as estate and gift tax complications, the availability of spousal benefits and of certain deductions and exemptions, and the possibility of filing amended returns. The panelists will share their insights on the Supreme Court’s rulings in Windsor and in Hollingsworth v. Perry. The panel will also share ideas on necessary IRS guidance in light of these decisions.
