Question

If a person adopts a child WITHOUT special needs can that person still receive an adoption tax credit? I was told that a person can receive up to $8000 for just adopting a child.

ACT's Response

Yes, there is a tax credit for adoption regardless of special need. Since the amount varies depending on the circumstances and the year, you need to research the issue or consult a tax professional about your own situation.
