Randolph says the Domestic Partnership Tax Equity Policy will go into effect immediately.

He says the federal tax code penalizes same-sex couples when it comes to health care.

The stipend will depend on the coverage the employee wants, such as whether the employee wants to add a partner or children, too.

It'll range from 350 dollars to 13-hundred dollars annually.

The Orange County tax collector employs two-hundred-thirty-two people.

The tax collector and the property appraiser in Palm Beach County have a similar policy for employees with domestic partners.
