What is the Adopted Foster Child Credit?

Effective for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2008, a taxpayer is entitled to an income tax credit for the adoption of a qualified foster child. This credit applies to adoptions occurring in taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2008.

The amount of the credit is $2,000 per qualified child per taxable year, beginning with the year in which the adoption became final and ending in the year in which the adopted child attains the age of 18.

The child must be claimed as a dependent on your tax return to qualify.
