Legal cannabis operations face a challenging and confusing federal and state tax system – including special state taxes, frequent and detailed audits, requisite tax forms and codes (including Form 8300 for Cash Payments Over $10,000 Received in a Trade or Business) and Code Section 280E (disallowing deductions for ordinary and necessary business expenses but allows deductions for Cost of Goods Sold [COGS]). Gambling with mandated tax compliance could lead to audits and adversely affect state licensing. Contact us for more information to ensure your business success!
