Adoption Tax Credit Information

Published Tuesday, March 15, 2011 11:31 PM.

From the IRS website:

In 2010 and 2011, you may be able to take a refundable tax credit for qualifying expenses paid to adopt an eligible child (including a child with special needs). This means that you could qualify for a tax refund even if you did not have federal income tax withheld. For tax years prior to 2010, the adoption credit is not refundable.
