A Big Thank You to Indiana for Weighing in Against the Medical Device Tax

By May 30, 2013Taxation

Last week the Indiana Legislature sent a letter to President Obama and Congress with a resolution passed by the 118th Indiana General Assembly urging Congress to repeal the 2.3% medical device excise tax. Like other states, Indiana recognizes the enormous economic value that the medical device industry is providing for its communities in terms of good-paying jobs, R&D development and plans for further expansion of local facilities. As a result of the tax, more than 60,000 jobs are currently at risk in Indiana alone. We urge the Administration to seriously consider Indiana’s resolution and for Congress to take swift action to repeal this onerous tax.
