Taxes and the Cannabis Industry
- Course Description
During this course we will cover the paradox of an illegal activity at the federal level and the ever-increasing number of states legalizing the sale of both medicinal and recreational drugs. We will look at the official IRS position on the business deductions allowable and filing of tax returns. From banking concerns to IRC Section 280E (which prohibits businesses from taking tax deductions or credits related to illegal activities), to state rules and regulations we will explore the challenges to the tax professional with clients in this industry. There is sufficient tax law to review that addresses the challenges of working in the industry and filing an accurate tax return.
