Tax Year Prior to 2020: Hi, I need help entering monetary information into Qualified Adoption Expenses

While inside the software and working on your return, type adoption credit in the Search at the top of the screen (you may see a magnifying glass there).  There will be a popup that says Jump to adoption credit.  Select that to get to the general area. 

Qualified adoption expenses are reasonable and necessary adoption fees. They include: court costs, attorney fees, traveling expenses (including amounts spent for meals and lodging while away from home), and other expenses directly related to the legal adoption of an eligible child.

Qualified adoption expenses do not include expenses: for adopting your spouse’s child, for a surrogate parenting arrangement, that violate state or federal law, paid using funds received from a federal, state, or local program,  paid or reimbursed by your employer or any other organization, or  allowed as a credit or deduction on a federal tax return.
