Many organizations are lobbying in favor of its extension, but the results remain to be seen. On a positive note, on February 13th, President Obama sent Congress his budget for the fiscal year 2013, which begins October 1, 2012. Included in the budget is a proposal to make the Adoption Tax Credit permanent, while also maintaining the increases and refundability portions for the years 2012 and 2013. The Adoption Tax Credit has been instrumental in promoting adoption for many years.

Here you will find an Adoption Tax Credit Advocacy Kit setting forth how you can help.
