    Federal Adoption Tax Credit

    The adoption tax credit was made permanent at the beginning of 2013, but it was not made refundable.  A non-refundable credit is one in which taxpayers receive a refund of federal income taxes, but only up to the amount of taxes they otherwise had due. 

    For 2014, the maximum adoption credit and exclusion is up to $13,190 per child. The credit will begin to phase out for families with modified adjusted gross incomes above $197,880 and the credit will go away completely for those with incomes of $237,880 and up.

    For 2015, the maximum adoption credit and exclusion is up to $13,400 per child. The credit will begin to phase out for families with modified adjusted gross incomes above $201,010 and the credit will go away completely for those with incomes $241,010 and up.
