A state audit on a tax credit for adoptions shows the money might not be going where the Legislature had intended it to go. Current state law allows up to a $10,000 tax credit to families who adopt children. The original intention of the Legislation was to encourage Missourians to adopt special needs children in this state. But State Auditor Claire McCaskill says that’s not exactly what’s happening. McCaskill says there’s nothing wrong with international adoption, if that’s what the State Legislature wants to promote. She hopes changes can be made to the law to have Missouri money help children in this state. McCaskill thinks the changes to the law to reflect the original intent could be made in amendments to bills on state tax credits being debated today, however, she admits she has no champion for this cause at this time.
