Representatives with AdoptHelp announced today that now is the perfect time for prospective adoptive parents to provide a loving home for a deserving child, and also receive the federal adoption credit.

“There is great news for prospective adoptive parents,” said Mark Goldman, founder and spokesman for “The federal adoption tax credit that had expired on December 31, 2012, was reenacted in the beginning of 2013. Indeed, Congress not only revived the tax credit in the American Taxpayer Relief Bill, it made it permanent.”

AdoptHelp is a full service domestic adoption center specializing in both independent and collaborative adoptions.

Goldman explained that for 2014, the federal adoption tax credit is $13,190.

“The amazing thing about this subsidy is that it is not a deduction that reduces your income for purposes of determining your tax liability,” Goldman stressed, before adding, “Rather, it is a tax refund based on a dollar for dollar reduction of your total tax liability. Simply put, the adoption tax credit is $13,190 dollars in your pocket to offset your adoption costs.”

Going forward, Goldman noted, the amount of the credit will slightly increase each year because it is based upon a “cost of living” calculation.

As for income restrictions associated with the tax credit, Goldman pointed out, that for 2014 the adoption tax credit is fully available in the amount of $13,190 if your modified adjusted gross income is equal to or less than $197,880.

If adoptive parents modified adjusted gross income is more than $197,880, but less than $237,880, he said, adoptive parents will receive a reduced tax credit.

If their modified adjusted gross income is $237,880 or more for the year, however, they are not eligible for the tax credit.

The numbers that define the lower and upper limits of income eligibility also will fluctuate as they too are based upon current cost of living.

“In order to take advantage of the adoption tax credit, I strongly recommend that you consult with a tax professional to determine the extent of the tax credit available to you,” Goldman said.

When it comes to adoptions, the company spokesman pointed out that AdoptHelp can help.

“Whether you are a birth mother searching for the perfect adoptive parents or adoptive parents searching to adopt a newborn baby, our adoption team of innovative adoption professionals is here to help you create a personalized adoption plan that is right for you,” Goldman said.
