October 8, 2011

According to a recent IRS publication:The adopting parent may claim an adoption credit to the extent provided under § 36C. Section 36C(d)(1)(C) does not allow taxpayers to claim an adoption credit for expenses incurred in adopting the child of the taxpayer’s spouse. However, the limitation in section 36C(d)(1)(C) does not apply to adoptions by registered domestic partners because registered domestic partners are not spouses as defined by federal law.
