WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Governor Sam Brownback's office says same-sex couples in Kansas who were married last year after the state's ban was struck down in November can file their taxes jointly for the 2014 tax year. Brownback spokeswoman Eileen Hawley said Tuesday that same-sex couples who filed for an extension on their 2014 taxes or want to go back and amend their taxes may file jointly. The Wichita Eagle reports that the Kansas Department of Revenue said Monday that couples would be able to file jointly for the current 2015 tax year. Hawley says the agency reviewed its policy and confirmed that gay couples also will be able to file jointly for 2014. Equality Kansas executive director Tom Witt hailed Tuesday's announcement, saying married same-sex couples should be allowed to file their taxes with the exact same status as other married couples.
