Can Employees Pay for Health Coverage for Same-Sex Spouses on a Pre-Tax Basis Under Our Cafeteria Plan? One of our employees has a same-sex spouse who is eligible for coverage under our health plan. he would like to enroll his spouse for coverage during the next open enrollment period. Can he pay for his spouse's coverage with pre-tax salary reductions under our cafeteria plan?
Yes, assuming that the marriage was validly entered into in a state or other domestic or foreign jurisdiction with the legal authority to sanction marriages. After the U.S. Supreme Court's Windsor decision, legally married same-sex spouses will qualify for the tax treatment accorded to spousal benefits under federal law, even if the couple resides in (or moves to) a state or other jurisdiction that does not recognize the validity of same-sex marriages.
