SHARE HATCH WANTS TAX CREDIT FOR FAMILIES WHO ADOPT

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, wants to give families who adopt children a $5,000 tax credit.

Hatch introduced a bill to do that this week saying that adoptions often cost more than $15,000 - after all fees for courts, attorneys, hospitals and physicians."Our tax system should encourage families to adopt children," Hatch said.

"These tax provisions are specifically aimed to help families who might not be able to afford to adopt," he said.
