Tax Information

As you plan for April 15, we urge you to do all you can to take advantage of tax savings that might be available to you as a foster, adoptive, or kinship caregiver. A great place to check before starting your taxes is the website of the National Foster Parent Association, especially their page at:
http://www.nfpainc.org/ref/taxes.cfm?page=5

Here you will find links to some of the best foster parent tax information on the web, including:

  • Adoption Subsidy Tax Information
  • Casey Family Programs’ Federal Tax Benefits for Foster and Adoptive Parents and Kinship Caregivers
  • TurboTax: FAQ on Foster Family Taxes
  • The Internal Revenue Service
  • H&R Block
