Tax returns for registered domestic partners, including same-sex spouses, can be complex. The laws in your state, and more specifically community property laws, dictate how you file and which deductions you can claim. There are nine community property states in the nation: Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin. Your state’s laws also determine how you, as a registered domestic partner, file your returns federally with the Internal Revenue Service.
