The cannabis industry is a unique and complex industry, especially when it comes to taxes and accounting. Because of the legality at the state level and illegality at the federal level, many traditional accounting firms won’t even touch cannabis businesses. This leaves the fastest growing industry in the United States vastly underserved by traditional accounting firms and poorly serviced by CPAs that don’t know cannabis accounting.

What is 280E? Simply put, IRS Code 280E disallows your ordinary operating deductions for tax purposes because cannabis is classified by the DEA as a Schedule I drug. We have educated ourselves on 280E through self-study, seminars, classes and by networking with other accountants serving the cannabis industry to maximize your tax deductions under current tax law.FIND OUT MORE
