On Wednesday, June 5th, the Miami Beach City Commission will vote on enacting a first-of-its-kind Tax Equity Ordinance that would finally treat gay and lesbian city employees in domestic partnerships the same as opposite-sex married couples.
Current federal policy forces employers to charge their employees in same- or opposite-sex domestic partnerships extra taxes on health insurance. This is is real money that can sometimes lead to lost wages upwards of $1,000 a year. If it passes, the new policy would reimburse city employees in domestic partnerships for those extra taxes.
I am signing this petition to show my support for equality and to demand that the Miami Beach City Commission vote in favor of tax equity for employees in domestic partnerships. I believe that we must keep the City of Miami Beach moving forward.
