Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 801 - For all tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2023, this act authorizes a taxpayer to claim a tax credit for serving as a community-based faculty preceptor for a medical student core preceptorship or a physician assistant student core preceptorship, as such terms are defined in the act. The tax credit shall be equal to $1,000 for each preceptorship, but not to exceed $3,000 in any tax year. Tax credits authorized by the act shall not be refundable or transferable, and shall not be carried forward or backward to any other tax year. The total amount of tax credits authorized in a given year shall not exceed $200,000. Additional tax credits may be authorized provided in amount not to exceed the excess funds available in the Medical Preceptor Fund, as created by the act.

Beginning January 1, 2023, the Division of Professional Registration of the Missouri Department of Commerce and Insurance shall increase the license fees for physicians and surgeons by $7 and for physician assistants by $3, with such revenues to be deposited in the Medical Preceptor Fund. At the end of each tax year, an amount equal to the total dollar amount of tax credits claimed during the tax year shall be transferred to the General Revenue Fund. (Section 135.690)
