1 This handout was developed to illustrate the application of the transition relief for the adoption of a hospital facility’s first implementation strategy as described in the Internal Revenue Service’s proposed rules published in April The IRS’s description of the transition relief turns upon the taxable year after March 23, 2010 in which a hospital facility “conducts” (i.e., widely publicizes) its first CHNA. The proposed rules state the following regarding transition relief: “i. CHNA Conducted in Taxable Year Beginning Before March 23, 2012 These proposed regulations provide that a hospital facility that conducted a CHNA described in section 501(r)(3) in either of its first two taxable years beginning after March 23, 2010, does not need to meet the requirements of section 501(r)(3) again until the third taxable year following the taxable year in which the hospital facility conducted the CHNA. To qualify for this transition relief, the hospital facility must adopt an implementation strategy to meet the community health needs identified through the CHNA conducted in its first taxable year beginning after March 23, 2010 or 2011 on or before the 15th day of the fifth calendar month following the close of its first taxable year beginning after March 23, Thus, for example, if a hospital facility reporting on a calendar-year basis conducts a CHNA in 2012 and adopts an implementation strategy for that CHNA on or before May 15, 2014, it does not need to meet the section 501(r)(3) requirements again until ii. CHNA Conducted in First Taxable Year Beginning After March 23, 2012 If a hospital facility conducts a CHNA described in section 501(r)(3) in its first taxable year beginning after March 23, 2012, these proposed regulations provide that the hospital facility will be deemed to satisfy the requirement to adopt an implementation strategy in the same taxable year the CHNA is conducted if an authorized body of the hospital facility adopts an implementation strategy to meet the community health needs identified through that CHNA on or before the 15th day of the fifth calendar month following the close of its first taxable year beginning after March 23, 2012.” The following provide two examples of the application of the above rules (1) for those who have a taxable year beginning on January 1 and (2) for those who have a taxable year beginning on July 1.
