The Executive Committee has been meeting with congressional staff over the last few months about the importance of protecting the adoption tax credit (ATC) and making it refundable. We have collectively made GREAT progress on the bipartisan Adoption Tax Credit Refundability Act (S. 950/H.R. 2434), but we still have work to do before congressional recess in July. That will be our last chance to advance the ATC bill this Congress!
There are 14 new cosponsors of H.R. 2434! Your phone calls and emails lead to more cosponsors of the ATC bill, which increases the likelihood that the bill will be considered.
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced a new Task Force on Tax Reform with the principle of limiting “credits that riddle the tax code.” We understand there is bipartisan interest in simplifying the tax code, but we know that the ATC makes adoption a more viable option for many children and families. Please keep the ATC from being eliminated in any tax reform efforts by:
1. Asking the House Ways & Means Committee to consider H.R. 2434 before recess in July
2. Asking your Members of Congress to cosponsor S. 950/H.R. 2434
Let’s keep up the momentum of strengthening families through the ATC!
