This session will help you understand how the Adoption Tax Credit works, how it can help you, and who qualifies for this wonderful credit. A child adopted from the foster care system and declared special needs, according to the state’s criteria, will qualify for the full amount of the Adoption Tax Credit with little or no expenses necessary. Each state has different criteria as to what qualifies as special needs. The adoption must be final and the credit should be claimed in the tax year that the adoption is finalized. You will leave this session with a better understanding of what documentation may be requested by the IRS and how and when to file for the tax credit.
