New seminar topics are being developed as we address the legislation as a result of COVID-19 and how it affects businesses and tax returns through December 31, 2020.

Instructor: Nina Tross, EA, MBA

Course Description: This session will address the new considerations when preparing taxes for a Cannabis dispensary and when the transition from the farming rules are addressed. The harvesting of cannabis is subject to the farming regulations, the transition to dispensing requires a different look at the accounting and tax preparation strategies. We will look at the farming regulations in general and how they impact the Cannabis industry. Many states continue to legislate the allowance for growth and sales of Cannabis while Federal Law continues to enforce the illegal growth and distribution.

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, the Tax Professional will have an understanding of the rules needed to properly prepare tax returns for clients who are engaged in the trade or business of operating a Cannabis Dispensary and Harvesting the crop. The participant will have a good understanding of the farming rules as it relates to accounting and taxation of Cannabis. Participants will also be alerted to the rules of taxation dealing with a product which is illegal at the Federal level.

Notes to all attendees:
  • Be sure you have your passport and it is current (expiration date is more than 6 months)
  • The all-inclusive program does include all taxes and tips. The hotel checks you will be asked to sign are required for internal bookkeeping purposes. If you wish to tip someone for special service it must be done in cash, if you put it on the hotel check it will just be lumped in with all of the hotel tips.
  • Mexico currency is the peso and most vendors accept U.S. dollars. However, under Mexico law if you pay with U.S. dollars the change must be in pesos. Credit cards (generally Visa or MasterCard) are accepted at most major shops and restaurants but tips are generally paid in cash at the restaurants. Cash would be needed for cabs, the vendor marketplaces, and some shops – most shops will give a discount for cash paid rather than use of a credit card.
  • If you have not yet booked your shuttle from the airport to the hotel, do so as quickly as possible. Reservations must be made in advance for shuttle service under the arrangements with the taxi union and cannot be made once you reach the airport in San Jose de Los Cabos. Other options are private taxi or shared taxi van, both available at the airport. Uber is now in Cabo San Lucas; however, they cannot pick up at the airport. But you can use the Uber App if you are looking for transportation around town.
  • And finally, DO NOT stop when you are exiting the airport. Just keep walking, smile and say NO! There is nothing you need to sign, register or arrange once you have cleared immigration and customs. Once you exit the airport look for the Grayline sign being held up by representatives in green shirts (or whichever shuttle service you are using).
  • If you plan to use a fishing charter while in Cabo please contact me for information. There are many different fishing charters in the area and I can help you sort through the best one for your use.
If you have any questions or requests I can be reached at Nina@NSTP.org; I will be at the Meet and Greet on Monday evening; and working the registration table on Tuesday.
