The Coalition opposes the Medical Device Tax and works with other stakeholder organizations and associations to repeal the tax.
Until the tax is repealed, the Coalition has urged the IRS to implement the tax in a way that places the least amount of burden on the supply chain by:
- Including internet retailers within the definition of retail
- Allowing for a voluntary, predetermination from the IRS for manufacturers seeking clarity for devices meeting retail exemption criteria
- Defining the phrase “of a type” as devices within the same FDA product code
- Accepting the 12 calendar quarter blanket exemption process for purposes of meeting the substantiation requirements of the further manufacture exemption
