Time Warner Will Cover Tax Inequities For Employees In Same-Sex Unions

Time Warner Inc. has announced that it will begin implementing tax equalization on benefits for U.S. employees with state-recognize same-sex unions. Because of the Defense of Marriage Act, these employees must pay taxes on the benefits they receive for their partner, creating an additional financial burden. Time Warner will join several other companies by now absorbing this cost, ensuring that all employees can access the same corporate benefits in the same fair way.
