Dental Devices Likely to be Taxed as of Jan.

1, 2013


Based on the ruling issued by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and on the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations listing from 21 CFR 872, Subparts B,D, and E, those medical/dental devices subject to the 2.3 percent tax as of Jan. 1, 2013, appear to include restorative materials, hand instruments, endodontic filling materials, and other devices listed below. Direct restorations, laboratory-fabricated restorations, and laboratory-fabricated prostheses, will likely not be taxed, although the IRS reserves the right to tax any devices. Disposables, such as exam gloves, patient bibs, and other products that may be purchased directly by a patient and do not require application at a dental or medical office, will likely fall under a retail exemption and not be taxed. However, this will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. A manufacturers sales price is presumed to include the excise tax; therefore, dental practices will likely not have to pay a separate tax line item to a manufacturer, but the manufacturer may pass its costs along to the purchaser by increasing the actual sales prices of its inventory. This list is provided as a reference and should not be presumed to be all-inclusive since the IRS may impose additional taxes.
