The Federal Adoption Tax Credit is offered to adoptive parents to help offset the expenses incurred when building a family through adoption.

Many families qualify for the tax credit, which can be used for up to $13,190 in adoption expenses per child, including agency fees, court costs, medical care, and other international and domestic adoption expenses.
