Braley joins family who benefited from tax credit in Waterloo, Cedar Rapids, and Des Moines 

 

Washington, DC – On Monday in Waterloo, Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) will announce a legislative effort he’s launching to renew and expand a tax credit for families that choose to adopt children.

 

Braley will introduce the Making Adoption Affordable Act, a bill to permanently extend a federal tax credit for qualified adoption expenses.  The legislation also expands the tax credit to $13,360 and makes refundable, allowing more families to take full advantage of it.

 

Braley will be joined at the stops by Jonathan and Kayla Craig and their son Joseph, a Des Moines-area family who appealed to Braley’s office for help when the adoption of Joseph nearly fell through because of bureaucratic red tape.  The Craigs are claiming the adoption tax credit on their 2011 federal tax return.  The deadline to file federal income taxes is April 16th.
