A network for gay mommies & daddies (& those who want to be!)
I was told you can deduct eligible adoption expenses however you want, as long as the money's only deducted once. You just tally them up and split them. We did it all on my taxes this past year because I made significantly less than Todd and his income was higher than the allowable limits for those deductions. For the dependent allowances, you have to choose which one, because that one can't be split and they do ask for the child's Tax ID or SSN.
