STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Idaho Code 63-36220 exempts certain non-profit organizations,
including "health-related entities" from state sales tax. One of the health-related
entities defined in this statute is the Idaho Heart Association. Prior to 1995, the
Idaho Heart Association was an independent Idaho non-profit corporation and an
affiliate of the American Heart Association. In 1995, the Idaho Heart Association
merged into the American Heart Association. This bill is a housekeeping bill
that simply follows the merger and name change from the "Idaho Heart
Association" to the "American Heart Association" and insures that the sales tax
exemption continues to apply to the same "Heart Association".
There is no impact to the general fund.
