Good news for adoptive families on the health care bill signed into law in March. Included in the changes were favorable changes to the Adoption Tax Credit. The Joint Council for International Children's Services summarize the changes as follows:

  • The credit was made refundable. If a family has no tax liability, the IRS will refund the amount due.
