Where is the adoption tax credit to be entered?

We adopted a little boy this year, but I don't see anywhere that was asked or mentioned?   And I know there is an adoption credit?

Where is the adoption tax credit to be entered?

Per the IRS, for both the credit and the exclusion, qualified adoption expenses, defined in section 23(d)(1) of the Code, include:

  • Reasonable and necessary adoption fees,
  • Court costs and attorney fees,
  • Traveling expenses (including amounts spent for meals and lodging while away from home), and
  • Other expenses that are directly related to and for the principal purpose of the legal adoption of an eligible child.

For more information, please see the IRS link:
