The maximum adoption credit is $11,650 per child. If you and another person (other than your spouse if filing jointly) each paid qualified adoption expenses to adopt the same child, the $11,650 limit must be divided between the two of you. You can divide it in any way you both agree. Cross out the preprinted entry on line 2 and enter above line 2 your share of the $11,650 limit for that child.
