  • How will the Adoption Tax Credit be valuable for us?
  • What type of adoption expenses can we claim, and what records are needed when we file our taxes?
  • When can we claim this tax credit?

Please note, we’re presenting this information as adoption professionals to help you gather questions and knowledge about the tax credit, not as tax professionals. We recommend that you ask a qualified tax preparer for specific answers about how the Adoption Tax Credit will apply in your unique circumstances.
