According to the Texas Comptroller’s Office citing Texas Tax Code Ch.151, Texas Sales Use and Excise Taxes, and Rule3.284 Drugs, Medicines, Medical Equipment, and Devices:
A hot tub, or similar appliance, qualifies as a therapeutic appliance when prescribed to an individual by a licensed practitioner of the healing arts. The customer must provide the seller a signed statement from the doctor or other licensed practitioner of the healing arts, on the practitioner’s letterhead, specifying why the hot tub, or similar appliance, is prescribed. The signed statement should specify the medical requirements for the hot tub, spa, or similar appliance. See Rule 3.284 (d)(11)(B).
The following 3 originals are required and must be in Coleman Bright Ideas for Your Home’s possession prior to delivery of your hot tub spa:
- Prescription from a licensed Medical Doctor or Chiropractor
- Signed statement on letterhead from a licensed practitioner of the healing arts specifying the medical requirements
