Domestic partners: Grossing up to offset extra income tax

The official corporate blog for Google has an entry today, July 1, Celebrating Pride 2010, with the link here.  I don’t recall seeing a booth or float for the company in either Washington or Baltimore; the company mentions Dublin and Pittsburgh.

The posting points to an HRC article on “Domestic partner benefits: grossing up to offset imputed income tax”, with link here.  This means paying more gross salary or wage to offset the extra income tax that results from the lack of legal marital status for the domestic partner. HRC offers a curious disclaimer that the article does not constitute “legal advice”.
