Saving the Adoption Tax Credit

On Friday, Adoption STAR received promising news on the extension of the adoption tax credit.

As of now, the adoption tax credit is scheduled to conclude on December 30 (except for special needs adoption), however, both the House of Representatives and the Senate are considering bills which would “accomplish the goal of an inclusive, permanent, refundable adoption tax credit.”

To ensure that these bills pass, please contact your local representative and ask them to co-sponsor “HR 4373” and both of your senators and ask them co-sponsor “S 3616.”

The adoption tax credit has reduced the cost of adoption for many families, giving forever homes to children who may not have had the opportunity otherwise. Adoption STAR is passionate about extending the adoption tax credit, and is an official member of the Adoption Tax Credit Working Group.
