Petitioning Help Make Adoption Affordable

Support House (HR 2476) and Senate (S 937) the Adoption Credit Refundability Act of 2017

Help make Adoption Affordable

The average cost to adopt a child is any where from $25k- $35k or more. Currently, for the 2017 the Tax Credit is: 

• A maximum of $13,570 for 2017 returns only

The 2017 Tax Credit is not refundable for adoptions, which means a large number of families may not be able to get any of the $25k- $35k back and possibly prevent people from adopting a child at all.

We are petitioning to make the adoption tax credit permanent and refundable, so that more money is available to families allowing them provide a financially stable home to the adopted child.

Currently, there are two bills HR 2476 and S 937 that this petition is supporting.
