While the Supreme Court's decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act is a victory for same-sex couples, many will end up footing higher tax bills if they legally say, "I do.", according to ABC News.



If they are legally married in their state, same-sex couples would be subject to the same "marriage penalty" or "marriage bonus" as other married couples, depending on how much each person makes and how different their incomes are.
