Understanding the complexities

Taxes and audits are a harsh reality for most companies, but for those businesses involved in the cannabis industry, they can be particularly brutal. Sec. 280E prohibits any deduction of a taxpayer's business expenses if the taxpayer's trade or business consists of trafficking controlled substances. This means you as a tax practitioner need to be at the top of your game in order to ensure proper tax compliance for your cannabis clients.

Join industry experts Rachel Gillette and James Mann as they discuss the nuances of taxes, audits and Sec. 280E in the cannabis industry. You'll also hear from the attorneys who are representing Harborside in the appeal of a Tax Court decision to the Ninth Circuit. This webcast is offering a full gamut of information involving the cannabis industry that you don't want to miss!
