Multistate Tax Alert: Georgia Amends Its “Hospital Bed Tax”
In 2010 Georgia adopted the Provider Payment Agreement Act, which included a “provider payment tax” imposed on hospital “net patient revenue” at a rate of 1.45%. Dubbed the “hospital bed tax” by critics, the tax was due to expire on June 30, 2013. Recently, however, the Hospital Medicaid Financing Program Act (Senate Bill 24, “S.B. 24”) was enacted, extending the applicable statute for four years and granting the Board of Community Health authority to establish rules and regulations to assess and collect the tax.
