N.Y. to issue refunds to married same-sex spouses forced to pay estate tax

Same-sex spouses forced to pay high New York estate taxes upon the death of their partner will get refunds from the state.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday that the refunds are being issued as a result of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act, also known as DOMA.
