I HAVE BEEN DENIED BY IRS THAT I CAN NOT GET THE ADOPTION CREDIT FOR ADOPTING MY DISABLED GRANDDAUGHTER.

Asked about 1 year ago - El Paso, TX

IRS IS TELLING ME THAT I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH PROOF TO PROVE THAT MY ADOPTED DAUGHTER IS DISABLED EVEN THOUGHT I HAVE MEDICAL RECORDS, STATE WHERE I ADOPTED HER STATING SHE WAS DISABLED WHEN SHE WAS UNDER THEIR CARE, SHE HAS DANDY WALKER MALFORMATION SYMDROME WHICH IS GENETIC. I HAVE MEDICAL RECORDS FROM DOCTORS HERE IN EL PASO, TX ALSO, NOW THEY HAVE DENIED ME THE ADOPTION CREDIT EVEN THOUGH I CAN NOT FIND IN THE LAW WHERE IT SAYS THE CHILD HAS TO BE DISABLED TO RECEIVE THE ADOPTION CREDIT.
