Danville, IN–Congressman Todd Rokita fights to maintain the Adoption Tax Credit to help Hoosier families.
“All parents work hard to protect and fight for their child. For parents who choose adoption, they also face a large financial burden at the onset of the adoption on top of the costs for raising a child. I want the federal government to maintain the current adoption tax credit to aid Hoosiers who are starting or growing their families through adoption.”
Congressman Todd Rokita worked to include the Adoption Tax Credit in the House Tax Reform proposal. Rokita wrote a letter to the Chairman Kevin Brady of the Ways and Means Committee arguing the importance of the Adoption Tax Credit. After Rokita wrote the letter and worked with the Republican Study Committee, this tax credit was restored in the House version of tax reform.
“This tax reform package is all about families and the middle class. The Adoption Tax Credit is just one of the many ways families are being prioritized in this reform,” concluded Rokita.
