Mr. Robert E Gallegos (in his letter published Feb. 12) stated that New Mexico’s proposed domestic-partnership legislation would create an unfair tax advantage for domestic partners over married people, such as himself. Mr. Gallegos asserts that he and his wife in 2007 would have paid 49 percent less in state and federal taxes if they had been able to file as single taxpayers. Later he states that he and his wife would have to pay “almost $4,000 more in taxes than two single people.”
