For its efforts to extend and enhance the adoption tax credit, the Adoption Tax Credit Working Group was selected by the Joint Council on International Children’s Services to receive its 2012-2013 Outstanding Child Advocate Award. The award is given to a person, organization or group for dedication and commitment to children and families to ensure they live, grow, and thrive to the best of their abilities.
“The Adoption Tax Credit Working Group was unanimously selected by the committee,” said Brian Franklin, Joint Council board chairman and award committee member. “It was a no-brainer. The Working Group not only demonstrated how collaborations can work for children, but the outcome, a permanent adoption tax credit, will benefit hundreds of thousands of children for years to come. It is our honor to recognize the Working Group and its continued effort to do even more by making the Adoption Tax Credit refundable for all adoptive families.”
We are proud to receive the award and will continue to fight to make the adoption tax credit refundable. You can read a full press release here.
