H.R.1244: Equal Dignity for Married Taxpayers Act of 2019
The Equal Dignity for Married Taxpayers Act would clarify that all provisions of the Internal Revenue Code shall apply to legally married same-sex couples in the same manner as other married couples.
S. 515 is the Senate companion bill
- The National Assembly is committed to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The National Assembly envisions equity as the condition in which differences among people have no influence on how they fare in society.
- Equity is advanced through the implementation of policies, practices, attitudes, and cultural messages that prevent differential outcomes based on the differences among people. This requires a continuous reevaluation of norms, and a commitment to eliminating policies, practices, and systems that perpetuate inequity, so that all people are fully welcomed, valued, respected, and heard.
- The National Assembly supports H.R. 1244, legislation that would afford equal treatment to members of the LGBTQ+ community under our tax code.
