Each dollar spent on adoption, up to $13,400, is included in the credit. If you claim a special needs child, you may claim the full credit regardless of your expenses. This credit is available for each child you adopt as long as the child is not your spouse's child or a child from a surrogate mother. The credit is nonrefundable so you can only zero out your income tax liability with it. Any remaining credit may be carried over for up to five years.
