Excerpt from Commonwealth Court Denies Manufacturing Exclusion to Service Provider -

On August 6, 2013, in a case with possible implications for other providers of nontaxable services, Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth Court ruled, en banc, that a medical group’s MRI and CT scan equipment does not qualify for the manufacturing exclusion for Sales and Use Tax purposes. The Court affirmed the Board of Finance and Revenue’s denial of a refund claim filed by Tristan Radiology Specialists, P.C. (“Taxpayer”) for tax paid on such equipment. We expect the Taxpayer to appeal the Commonwealth Court’s decision in this case.
