Line 31300 – Adoption expenses

Note: Line 31300 was line 313 before tax year 2019.

You can claim an amount for eligible adoption expenses related to the adoption of a child who is under 18 years of age at the time that the adoption order is issued or recognized by a government in Canada.

The maximum claim for each child is $16,729.

You can claim all of the eligible adoption expenses that you incurred but you have to claim them in the tax year that includes the end of the adoption period for the child.
