Is that $5K per taxpayer, or $5K per taxpayer PER KID? I don't think it's very clear. They never seem to think of things like twins when they write there somewhere I can find the actual statute? My financial person thought it was "per kid" but this article doesn't say.

From what I saw on Alabama's website, it is $5000 per taxpayer. For a married couple, it would be $10,000 max. I don't know why there would be anything different for twins since there are plenty of multiple-kid families without twins.
