The matter of tax fairness for gay and lesbian couples remains a relatively new one in legislation, especially in jurisdictions where marriage equality does not exist. The state of California only recently heard a proposal that would grant tax relief to same-sex couples.

Germany’s conservative government has become the latest administration to consider tax reform that would grant same-sex couples the same tax perks as heterosexual couples. This marks a dramatic policy shift for the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) Party following their December congress where a proposal of tax equality was rejected.
