Adoption Tax Credit

Here’s a request for personal stories from adoptive families about how the adoption tax credit was helpful and important to them.
Adoption STAR is proud to be a part of the Adoption Tax Credit Working Group. In April, this group submitted comments to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Committee regarding individual income tax provisions, which would include the adoption tax credit.

However, it is still helpful for Senators participating in the Individual Tax Working Group to hear about the importance of the adoption tax credit directly from their constituents. These personal stories help members of Congress to understand the impact that the credit has for families that have adopted or are considering adoption.

It would be extremely helpful if your Senator heard from you! Please contact Adoption STAR’s International Adoption Coordinator Meg Montgomery at for a template for your state – you can insert your personal story and submit it to your Senator.

You can help preserve the adoption tax credit! Thank you and please let us know if you have any questions.
