Same-Sex Spouses and Domestic Partners: Benefits and Taxes

Learn the complex benefit and tax issues that come with the Defense of Marriage Act. Get up to speed to make sure you can handle the complex rules.

In United States v. Windsor, the Supreme Court held that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. Since the decision, more than a dozen courts have found state laws prohibited same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional. Even before states began recognizing these relationships, employers were in the lead providing benefits to same-sex couples to attract and retain employees. The Windsor decision, subsequent decisions, and employer developments have led to complex rules with respect to the taxation of employer benefits.
This ondemand webinar will focus on what the decision and the trend in recognition means for employers and their benefit plans: What is the impact of the court decisions? What spousal benefits are addressed under ERISA and the Code? Must employers provide benefits for same-sex spouses? What is the tax withholding and reporting impact? How does the growth in state recognition of same-sex marriage impact benefits?

This ondemand webinar reviews the developments with respect to states recognizing same-sex marriages, civil unions, and domestic partnerships; the growth in employer provided benefits for same-sex couples; and the impact of these developments on employer payroll withholding and reporting obligations. Employers that fail to review their payroll practices run the risk of under reporting income and owing federal and state penalties for failure to properly withhold and report income. Employers also run a risk of employee complaints if the value of benefits is included in income when it is exempt under federal or state income tax. This ondemand webinar is a must for human resource professionals and payroll professionals to assure they are up-to-date on these issues.
