  •  I'm not sure that makes you a tax protestor (9+ / 0-)

    The First Circuit (which covers Maine) has held DOMA unconstitutional, although they stayed the decision pending appeal to the Supreme Court.  Your position is thus hardly frivolous at this point, which is part of the quasi-official definition of a tax protestor.

    For same-sex married couples who don't want to go out on a limb with the IRS and risk penalties, a reasonable tax move would be to file protective tax refunds for years in which they are not allowed to file joint returns, which preserves the right to a refund pending the outcome of the cases involving DOMA.
