Adoption Tax Credit Extended!

My DH looked into it (he's a tax attorney) and it will be extended!!! Yay!!!

It will be adjusted yearly for inflation, but the 2013 amount should be around $13,000.

Re: Adoption Tax Credit Extended!

Is it refundable? Is it true that if you are self employed you will not benefit?

Not refundable. As long as you pay federal taxes, you can benefit.
