#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Are there income limitations for the adoption credit?

For 2017, the maximum amount of the adoption credit you can claim per eligible child is $13,570. The amount of the credit begins to decrease when your modified Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is equal to or exceeds $203,540.

The credit is not allowed when modified AGI is equal to or exceeds $243,540.

To calculate the modified AGI for the adoption credit, you take your AGI and add back certain deductions (such as student loan interest). Your AGI may be identical to your MAGI.
