Adoption Bill Tax Credit
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A bill that passed the Ohio House will increase the tax credit for an adoption from 1,500 dollars to 10,000 dollars.
Parents could even spread the credit over a five year period. The bill also gives the birth father 30 days to consent to adoption after the birth mother informs him she plans to give up the child. If he is not notified, the period for the father to register is reduced to seven days. The bill also reduces the amount of time an adoption could be challenged from a year to 60 days. The bill will now go to the senate.
