Holt International is proud to announce that Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) became a cosponsor of the Making Adoption Affordable Act (S. 3616/H.R. 4373), which prevents the adoption tax credit from expiring on December 31.
The legislation, originally introduced by Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), supports thousands of families who want to adopt, allowing them to provide children with loving, permanent families. The Making Adoption Affordable Act would set the tax credit at $13,360 and make it refundable and permanent. Making the tax credit refundable has made adoption a more viable opportunity, especially for those families with low to moderate incomes.
Holt is very appreciative of Senator Wyden’s support and will continue to advocate for the legislation. If you would like to voice your support, please contact your Member of Congress and encourage them to vote for this important legislation.
