Quote of the Day 11/18/2013

According to the tax commission’s decision, same-sex couples who are deemed married under federal law cannot file using a married status; instead, they must create a phony federal return that uses a single status designation, and file that with their Oklahoma tax return. In essence, the tax commission is requiring a taxpayer to submit a false federal document with their state return, an act that is normally considered a crime.
