State EMR Requirements, Incentives & Tax Issues
In addition to federal payments for use administered by each state, there are additional state specific payments available from government agencies and health insurers as outlined in this PDF. These vary widely, but in general are substantially lower than federal payments, if available at all, and are often geared towards reimbursing training and setup costs. Likewise, state tax laws and regulations vary widely and, as for federal tax guidance, you need to talk with an accredited tax professional to fully evaluate these issues.
While state EMR requirements purchase incentives can almost always be viewed as being in addition to federal payment opportunities, there can be complex interactions between federal taxable income and state tax liabilities, which make examining these issues carefully with a tax professional critical.
