Potential Changes to the South Carolina Tax Code Will Impact SC Infusion Providers
NICA is concerned with a proposed change to the South Carolina tax code, S.C. Code § 12-26-2120(80), found in Section 14 in H 3392. Effectively, this code change would render only 75% of biologic and injectable drug sales eligible for exemption from the state’s sales tax. This would result in an unfair tax burden on the state’s infusion providers.
Providers, ask your representatives to think of your infusion practice when considering Section 14 of H 3392, which would allow the state to impose a sales tax on 25% of the gross sale of provider-administered injectable medications and biologics.
