February 25, 2013. Preparing for Adoption Costs. The Wall Street Journal has an illuminating article about the costs (expected and unexpected) of adoption. Financial adviser Christopher Parr, "recommends clients budget for costs to be at least 20% higher than they originally estimated," while attorney Mark McDermott suggests that prospective adoptive parents prepare a realistic budget. Fortunately there are sources of funding for adoption. Of great importance is the adoption tax credit, which as McDermott points out, is $12,960 for 2013. Taxpayers with adjusted gross incomes of $194,580 are eligible for the entire tax credit; the tax credit phases out completed for taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $234,580.
