What does the fiscal cliff deal mean to me?

As Alameda County residents celebrated the end of one year and the beginning of a new one, members of Congress were busy reaching an agreement that prevented the country from going over the so-called fiscal cliff. While most people were just happy to learn that a deal had been reached on New Year's Day, the question soon became: What does the deal mean to me?

Bye-bye DOMA, hello refund for same-sex couples?

One of the reasons that same-sex marriage has been passed in other states in addition to California, is because of the preferential tax and legal status granted to married couples. One problem however is that the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, puts the federal government in conflict with the state government. Many of the states' marijuana laws do the same thing.

1993 California tax law ruled illegal

California is in competition with other states. We want the smartest children to come to our colleges. We would like people to buy our oranges rather than Florida's. And we are rightfully proud of Silicon Valley's reputation, Hollywood's entertainment value and our beautiful national parks.

Olympic gold is taxable (likewise silver and bronze)

Olympic athletes often give up a lot to pursue their sport. They may delay college, marriage, children or "real" jobs. They train and practice long and hard with the hope of getting a gold, silver or bronze medal. However, when they win that medal, they come home to a tax bill. That hardly seems fair does it?
