Federal Adoption Tax Credit for Adoptions before 2011

Updated April 2014

It's too late to benefit from the adoption tax credit for any adoptions before 2005.

If you adopted between 2005 and 2010 and you filed for an extension when you filed your 2010 taxes (back in early 2011), there is a possibility you can benefit from the adoption tax credit for those years.

If you did not file for an extension for 2010 taxes back in 2011, you cannot benefit from the adoption tax credit for adoptions from 2005 to 2010. The reason you cannot benefit is that there is a three-year statute of limitations for you to receive any refund due in a previous years. For taxpayers who did not file for an extension, tax year 2010 closed at the end of the day on April 15, 2014, which means they cannot get a refund due that year.

If you adopted from 2005 to 2010 and you did file for an extension back in 2011, please contact us at taxcredit@nacac.org or 651-644-3036 and we can help determine if you can still benfit.
