If you are an adoptive parent, at first excited that the former Adoption Tax Credit has been changed to an Adoption Tax Refund for tax years 2010 and 2011, by now you are probably scratching your head, yes?
Today, 60 days after filing our taxes, we received 'the letter.' You know the one ~ requesting receipts and supporting documents for adoption expenses claimed (even though we've submitted all documents previously requested and did not have to produce receipts for the ATC). Yes, that's the one.
Since I have far more important things to do than become distracted by this looming task, what with 5 prior adoptions and all, I decided to tackle the project tonight...and finish it tonight.
Let's see, where are those 2003 documents anyway?After
I believe our response can be summed up in this...
...and tomorrow will go out in this. Perhaps to wait for the next letter, requesting supporting documentation for our supporting documentation?
And as much as I'd love to stay up the other two hours of this night, I must slip off to bed now...so I can go to work tomorrow and pay my taxes, of course.
