Texas Comptroller to Issue Position Letter Re: Qualifying Orthopedic Purchases by Sept. 2017

May’s redetermination hearings on several of Agile’s hospital files concluded without any shift in the Comptroller’s position of what qualifies as exempt orthopedic purchases per the landmark Zimmer court ruling from 2012.  Agile believes the Comptroller has taken too narrow of an interpretation of these purchases and has filed Statement of Grounds supporting our position that arthroscopes and other tools & instruments for orthopedic surgeries should be sales tax exempt.  Comptroller Assistant General Counsel Jon Ross has been assigned and he has promised to deliver his initial Position Letter by early Sept.
