RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s largest LGBT advocacy group is holding a rally to protest a new state tax policy regarding same-sex couples.
Equality NC has scheduled a rally for Tuesday afternoon at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh to protest the policy from the state Department of Revenue. The policy says same-sex spouse couples cannot file income tax returns as “married filing jointly” or “married filing separately.”
That’s despite a ruling by the Internal Revenue Service directing that such filing be allowed.
The rally will include speeches by tax experts and LGBT families, as well as other married couples who support their cause.
