Take action today to help save the adoption tax credit — Please use social media to ask your Members of Congress to support the Adoption Tax Credit Refundability Act (H.R. 2144/S. 1056). Increasing cosponsorships of these bills is the best way to protect the adoption tax credit!
Congressman Camp’s tax reform proposal that eliminates the adoption tax credit makes your outreach that much more critical. While his particular proposal may never go anywhere, it has now become the basis from which tax reform discussions will begin. We need to ensure that we have vocal Members of Congress who will fight for the adoption tax credit. And the best way to get Members engaged is by hearing from constituents about the importance of an issue.
This week, we are asking you to engage with your three Members of Congress via social media. Find their Twitter account and Facebook page and follow them. (Many of their websites will include links to their Facebook and Twitter accounts. In other cases, you may need to search Facebook and Twitter to find the information.)
Using social media, ask your Members of Congress to protect the adoption tax credit and to cosponsor the Adoption Tax Credit Refundability bills. Make sure to reference the bill numbers S.1056 (for your Senators) and H.R.2144 (for your Representative). Let them know why the adoption tax credit matters to you, your family, and your community!
The more your Members hear from you, the better. If they are already a bill cosponsor, thank them for their dedication to adoption issues and use social media to let others in your community know of their support.
