Same-sex partner benefits | Do you have a plan?

The Supreme Court’s ruling, in United States v. Windsor, that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage of Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional has triggered guidance from Treasury, Internal Revenue Service,  US Department of Labor and state taxing authorities changing the manner in which employers retroactively and prospectively administer, tax and report same-sex spousal benefits.

Integrating the new rules into multiple business practices means analyzing, implementing and communicating with employees in a short time frame.

To start you off in the process, Ernst & Young LLP has  prepared a handy check list and sample work plan.
