Michigan Treasury Says Gays Married In Other States Must File Separate State Taxes

LANSING (AP) – Michigan Department of Treasury has decided that gay couples married in other states that have relocated here will have to file separate state taxes.

Following a summer Supreme Court ruling, those same couples are able to file Federal taxes together. The State Treasury Department will provide a worksheet on its website that can be used to recalculate income for Michigan taxes.

Michigan voters approved a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in 2004. There’s a federal challenge to Michigan’s ban which will be heard this October.
