Study: Same-sex couples pay more on taxes

Tax specialists analyzed the difference between same sex and heterosexual families for CNN Money. They found that while marriage provides tax benefits for many heterosexual couples, same sex families don't enjoy the same perks because they are not allowed to file their federal taxes jointly. In California same sex couples who are registered with the Secretary of State are required to combine their federal tax returns and file their state taxes jointly.
