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

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.

From the information you have provided, it appears you qualify for the adoption credit, and that your adopted daughter qualifies as a dependent. Possibly you did not provide all the necessary documents to the IRS for them to make a correct determination, or the IRS made a mistake in their determination, or perhaps the actual facts according to the documentation are different from what you believe they mean. You probably ought to consult with a tax attorney who can review your facts and your documentation and help you to get a correct result.
