Maryland Comptroller Peter V.R. Franchot vowed Wednesday to pursue any legislative or regulatory fixes necessary to allow the state's married same-sex couples to file joint state-level income tax returns.
A public interest group that pushes for immigration controls has asked Maryland to investigate the tax-exempt status of CASA de Maryland, a high-profile immigrant rights group that the Immigration Reform Law Institute says repeatedly engaged in political advocacy, breaking the law governing nonprofits.
"The main point is that we don't have to wait for federal action to change how same-sex couples file in Maryland," Mr. Shapiro said. "This is an instance where the state legislature in the upcoming session can change the state tax law to allow same-sex filing."
