2011 Adoption Tax Credit Refund

Sing with me...hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah hallelujah haaalleeeeeluuuujaaaaaaah!!

It's here, it's here, it's really really here! Full refund deposited today. The miracle part this is that MOST people who file the adoption credit wind up getting their refunds delayed, and delayed, and delayed.  MOST people have to send in receipts, and spreadsheets, and bank statements, and returned checks for a mini-audit that the IRS submits the majority of adoptive parents to.  Oh and this takes on average SIX months to finally get your full refund.

But by the grace of God-we didn't!!  God knew we needed it to go get Ian-and yet again HE provided.


For all you adoptive parents out there who want the gorey details here you go...

Mailed return on 2/16, Then started stalking the "Where's my Refund" website.
First status said April 1, then went to April 10, then to April 17, then both to April 24. Then to May 1 for about 2 weeks it stayed saying May 1.

Then about 5 days ago it changed saying:
Refund Status Results
Your tax refund is scheduled to be direct deposited on March 23, 2012. If your refund is not credited to your account by March 28, 2012, check with your bank to find out if it has been received. Please wait until March 28, 2012 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then.

And it came true today! I mailed return to Kansas City, MO, and included just the 3 forms they wanted- no receipts or spreadsheet. Good luck to everyone waiting.
