Adoption Tax Credit News from the IRS

On behalf of the Internal Revune Service, you are invited to join the Adoption Tax Credit Phone Forum on Friday, March, 23, 2012, at 1:00 pm EDT.

What is the objective? To help families who have adopted children get the refundable adoption tax credit they deserve.

Many taxpayers claiming the expanded adoption credit are not attaching the required documents to their paper tax returns.

  • Types of Adoptions
  • Adoption Credit Audits
  • Changes on the Horizon
  • How you can help eligible taxpayers claim the credit
