US families who adopt children are promised tax credits. For tax year 2010, the IRS offered tax REFUNDS instead. But adoptive families were required to file by paper rather than electronically - and are required to provide additional proof of adoption expenses even after attaching proof to our tax returns. Proof of expenses varies from family to family and from IRS officer to officer. We would like the US Congress to be aware and take action to assist us in expediting payment of credits due to us.
