Hospitals beware; a significant tax change is on the way.
Section 9007 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) enacted last March 2010 imposes new requirements for nonprofit hospitals that must be followed to keep a tax-exempt status. The new rules also mandate tax-exempt hospitals to administer community health needs assessments and to clarify and make known their financial assistance policies. Failure to do so may result to costly penalties which can be as high as $50,000.
