Beware of Tennessee hospitals bearing tax "gifts"

Tennessee hospitals are just fine paying a new tax....if we give them more Federal taxpayer money....sounds like one of those "heads I win, tails you lose" deals. (hint: Federal Taxpayers are amazingly similar to State taxpayers.)


THA president Craig Becker said the fee would begin on July 1 and be reviewed after a year. He wasn't sure about the exact amount of the fee, but said it could be between "1 and 2 percent".

Whatever it is, he said patients won't be affected.
