Free Webinar: Decoding 280E and Current Developments

Register for the 06/12/2024 webinar!

Please join us as we discuss the underpinnings of section 280E and how it is currently functioning in our tax system. We will discuss the position that Gonzales v. Raich is no longer good law and Section 280E does not apply to the current cannabis industry, the intersection of the 471(c) accounting method and Section 280E, and the possibility that past Section 280E costs may be deducted with rescheduling.  As seen in some of the national cannabis trade publications [], multiple MSOs have filed amended returns for their medical cannabis business operations with the hope of 280E tax refunds. This webinar works to better understand those return/refund scenarios and how they might possibly apply to cannabis business. Meanwhile, the Section 471(c) method has been in use for a few years and this webinar will discuss the mechanics of the method along with current developments.
