Doug Mancino and Christopher Jedrey were quoted in the July 5 issue of Tax Notes Today in an article discussing reactions to a recent questionnaire the IRS sent to tax-exempt hospitals inquiring about compensation practices and how much community benefits provide. "While the questionnaire asks good questions, answering some of them calls for multifaceted responses that don’t lend themselves to easy yes-or-no answers," said Mr. Mancino. Chris Jedrey also mentioned that he thinks bad debt is often synonymous with charity care. "I understand why the IRS wants to treat them as separate and distinct. However, a lot of hospitals don’t see a ‘clear bright line’ between bad debt and charity care," Mr. Jedrey added.
