Those working on taxes...

And using the adoption tax credit... It's saying that the IRS wants a copy of the adoption order showing the official seal. Is a photo copy sufficient? OR do they need one of our actual copies (with the stamped seal)? Anyone know?

I'll be doing it this year, but I think it's just a copy. If it ends up like anything like it was last year where you have to keep sending in the same documentation over and over again, it wouldn't make sense to send in one of the originals.

Agreed. We've sent many copies over the past year. And keep a copy of everything you send- it will make the next round easier.

Thanks! Gosh I hope it doesn't take that long to get it back!! The rest of our return is really simple. Hopefully that will help.

We did get the rest of our return on time. It's just the adoption credit that's been held up. Good luck!
