Updated August 29, 2013: U.S. Treasury and Internal Revenue Services announces that for tax purposes they will recognize same-sex marriages entered into in jurisdictions where they are legal even if the couple resides in a state that does not.

Since the June 26, 2013 U.S. Supreme Court United States v. Windsor decision that the federal government must recognize same-sex marriages, state and federal agencies have gleaned over the ruling to figure out if and how to implement it properly. Since the previous article dealing with immigration and civil unions, other state and federal issues have arisen.

The Internal Revenue Service has yet to announce its policy on dealing with same-sex married couples, unlike several other federal agencies already have done. Different states are coming to different conclusions on the issue. Check out the interactive Google Map below for specific examples.
