Making the tax credit fully refundable will ensure that more families and children will benefit. Right now, many adopting families do not have enough income to benefit from the credit at all.

Encouraging your Senators and Representative to cosponsor the bipartisan bill is the best way to show support for the adoption tax credit and prevent it from being eliminated in any comprehensive tax reform that moves forward.
