Am I eligible for the Ohio Adoption Credit?

You can claim a credit against your tax if you adopted a minor child (under 18 years of age) during the taxable year. The amount of credit is the greater of the following:
  • $1,500 per child adopted, or
  • The amount of expenses you paid to legally adopt the child, not to exceed $10,000.
This is a one-time credit per child. Any unused amounts can be carried forward for up to five years.

The adoption must be final and recognizable under Ohio law in the year for which you first claim the credit. "Legally adopt" does not include the adoption of a minor child by the child's stepparent.
