What is the Special Needs Adoption Credit?

A taxpayer who adopts a child in Utah who has a special need may claim a refundable credit of $1,000. This credit may only be claimed in the year the United States court issues the order granting the adoption. If it's a foreign adoption, you may claim the credit in the year the adoption is registered in accordance with UC Section 78B-6-142. You must be a resident of Utah on the date the adoption order is issued.

To claim this credit, the child must meet one of the following conditions:
  • Be five years of age or older
  • Be under the age of 18 and have a physical, emotional, or mental disability
  • Be a member of a sibling group (two or more persons) placed together for adoption
There is no form for this credit. Keep all related documents with your records.
