Dentrix Ideas

Defaults for Tax/Discount button

At least, add an option to Save as Default for what is selected in the Enter Tax/Discount dialog box. Improve to set up taxes/discounts per patient, account, provider or billing type to automatically apply taxes and discounts by just clicking the button.

    In Most office they don not have a person on staff paying GRT so it is usually overlooked. It would be great if you could add the ability to charge GRT on pt co-pay portion an non insured amounts to be automatically updated and a report to easly pull up the GRT amount to pay the state.

    2.3% Excise Tax Goes into Effect in 2013; FDA Registration Fees Increase Since the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act was signed into law in May 2010, laboratory owners have been wondering whether the 2.3% excise tax on medical devices applies to dental restorations. Despite the efforts of the U.S. House of Representatives, NADL, ADA and nearly a dozen other allied dental organizations to have dental devices excluded from the tax, the IRS denied the request at a public hearing in Washington D.C. in May. "Effective January 1, 2013, it's prudent for dental laboratories to be prepared for remitting a 2.3% excise tax on sales of finished devices," says Bennett Napier, CAE Executive Director, NADL. According to an analysis by Reed Smith, LLP, the NADL's Washington, D.C.-based law firm: - The tax applies to the finished device rather than components. For example, if Laboratory A outsources a partial framework to Laboratory B, there would be no tax due on the transaction. The tax only applies when Laboratory A delivers the final case to the prescribing dentist. For imported restorations, the importer- meaning the U.S. agent for the foreign laboratory, or the domestic laboratory or dental practice that sent it directly overseas - is responsible for paying the tax. Restorations fabricated in the dental office, including those fabricated via chairside milling systems, are also subject to the excise tax. In terms of administrative filing, laboratories will have to use Form 720 which is available at www.irs.gov to report and pay the tax. This form has to be filed quarterly and then a final Form 720 is submitted at the end of each year. Form 720 includes sections that help your accountant or bookkeeper determine your tax liability for each quarter. A large coalition of organized dentistry including the ADA, AGD, American Academy of Periodontology among others recently wrote the Internal Revenue Service to try and exempt dentistry from this tax. Exemption has been denied. Beginning January 1st, dental labs and apparently dentists who produce finished products through the use of CAD CAM machines apparently will have to charge the tax (dentists will be charged by labs, patients will be charged by dentists who use CAD CAM machines). Labs and dentists will have to begin filing Form 720 which is an excise tax return and begin paying in the tax electronically. Below is a link to the letter written to the Internal Revenue Service asking that dentistry be exempt and that the rules should be clarified.* It is likely that this will apply to the approximately 11,000 dentists who own CAD CAM machines and all dental labs. * Here is the link to the letter sent to the IRS: https://www.dentaltradealliance.org/images/dta_images/Files/ltr_05082012_medical%20device%20excise%20tax%20comments_irs.pdf Since dentists will be forced to not only collect this tax and file with the IRS quarterly, the software needs to be able to differentiate when anything taxable in the office is tracked and collected so that the Form 720 can easily be generated and forwarded to the IRS. ADA codes don't reflect when a crown, for example, has been milled in the office or fabricated in a dental lab.

    This enhancement should also split the discounts by provider.

    When anyone sells products in their office, they should be collecting sales tax. In order to do this, we have to perform several steps to calculate the sales tax in Dentrix. It would be nice to have some features in the Procedure Code setup that you would see on a standard POS software such as sales tax rate so that when that procedure is walked out, sales tax is automatically added instead on having to perform the additional steps Dentrix requires.

    Make all sales of products and tax automatically assigned to the owner/dentist as opposed to the treating dentist regardless of who the treating dentist is.

    When posting a particular code, it would be great for Dentrix to calculate sales tax and add the tax as a separate ledger entry.
