This is infuriating.
According to reports, the financial problems that famed photographer Annie Leibovitz is facing apparently stem from the pricey taxes she has to pay on the estate of her late
wife partner, Susan Sontag.
The thing that sucks is if Annie and Susan were a married couple, which gays and lesbians can't do, Annie wouldn't have to pay the taxes!!!
Same-sex couples do not have the same privileges as straight married couples when it comes to inheritance. If your partner passes away and leaves her estate to you, you have to pay up to 50 percent of the value of your inheritance in taxes. However, if you and your partner were recognized as a married couple, you wouldn't have to pay a dime.
This gay tax needs to be repealed.
Equality for all!
