BISMARCK, N.D.—North Dakota officials have issued a form that will allow legally married same-sex couples to file their state income taxes as individuals.

Lorie Bowker of the Office of State Tax Commissioner told the Grand Forks Herald the Internal Revenue Service’s August announcement that it would recognize legally performed same-sex marriages for federal tax purposes prompted the new form. North Dakota is among the 35 states that constitutionally ban nuptials for gays and lesbians.
