lets talk. get it out in the air in this thread and let us have a real discussion about what is bothering you and if we can find a solution. i may not agree with you, but i still care about you and want to get pass all this petty shiet and come to a compromise...
I just got this notice from the American Dental Association
As part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Internal Revenue Service is preparing to issue regulations implementing a 2.3-percent medical device tax, effective Jan. 1. The IRS has indicated that the forthcoming regulations will not include an exemption for dental devices, which the ADA and manufacturers requested.
The tax is a manufacturer's excise tax, so manufacturers and importers will be responsible for paying and reporting it. The proposed IRS rule appears to indicate that dental equipment, material and supplies purchased by a dentist for use in the office will be subject to the tax. It is also likely that dental prosthetics and dentures will not be taxed as products under the final rule, but that the materials that go into their manufacture will be.
Result: Fees for dental services will be going up by at least 2.3%.
