(A235, R291, H3747)

AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 12-36-2120, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO SALES TAX EXEMPTIONS, SO AS TO EXEMPT INJECTABLE MEDICATIONS AND INJECTABLE BIOLOGICS SO LONG AS THE MEDICATION OR BIOLOGIC IS ADMINISTERED BY OR PURSUANT TO THE SUPERVISION OF A PHYSICIAN IN AN OFFICE WHICH IS UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF A PHYSICIAN, OR IN A CENTER FOR MEDICARE OR MEDICAID SERVICES (CMS) CERTIFIED KIDNEY DIALYSIS FACILITY, AND TO DEFINE "BIOLOGICS" FOR THE PURPOSES OF THE EXEMPTION.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:

Certain injectable medications and injectable biologics exempted from sales tax

SECTION    1.    Section 12-36-2120 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 280 of 2010, is further amended by adding a new item at the end to read:

"( )(a)    Effective on July first immediately following a forecast meeting the requirements of subitem (b), injectable medications and injectable biologics, so long as the medication or biologic is administered by or pursuant to the supervision of a physician in an office which is under the supervision of a physician, or in a Center for Medicare or Medicaid Services (CMS) certified kidney dialysis facility. For purposes of this exemption, 'biologics' means the products that are applicable to the prevention, treatment, or cure of a disease or condition of human beings and that are produced using living organisms, materials derived from living organisms, or cellular, subcellular, or molecular components of living organisms.

(b)    Beginning with the February 15, 2013, forecast by the Board of Economic Advisors of annual general fund revenue growth for the upcoming fiscal year, and annually thereafter until the conditions of this item are met, if the forecast of that growth equals at least two percent of the most recent estimate by the board of general fund revenues for the current fiscal year, then on July first, the exemption described in subitem (a) shall apply to fifty percent of the gross proceeds of sales of the described items. Beginning the next July first, the exemption shall apply to one hundred percent of the gross proceeds of sales of the described items. If the February fifteenth forecast meets the requirement for a rate reduction, the board promptly shall certify this result in writing to the Department of Revenue."

Time effective

SECTION    2.    This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.

Ratified the 12th day of June, 2012.

Approved the 18th day of June, 2012.
