Focused Expertise relating to California’s Cannabis Industry

We have established practices and procedures that address the unique issues of tax reporting and tax collection for California’s marijuana industry relating to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”); the Franchise Tax Board (“FTB”); the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (“CDFTA”); the Economic Development Department (“EDD”), and the Bureau of Cannabis Control (“BCC”).

Our experience includes CPA services relating to permitting, licensing as well as reporting and paying marijuana excise tax and gross receipts tax at the municipal and county level.

We have developed effective strategies for addressing the onerous impact of the limitation on the deduction of ordinary and necessary business expenses imposed by Internal Revenue Code §280E on businesses engaged in “trafficking” in a controlled substance.

The MMJ Industry Practice Group of aBIZinaBOX has opened for business.  Our Group has professionals in Evanston, Illinois and Oakland, California.  Our group has devoted several years of study to the application of our business reporting and accounting experience and services to the unique requirements of the marijuana industry.
