National Tax Association appearance on Marijuana Taxation

Getting ready for a marijuana tax panel for the National Tax Association in Tampa Friday.   Unfortunately, my panel happens at the same time as a panel that overlaps tremendously with our subject matter.

Here’s mine:

Emerging Issues in Marijuana Taxation (Law Panel)

Friday, November 22, 2019

8:30 AM – 10:00 AM

  • Tampa Water Street Marriott – Meeting Room 7
Description

State legalization and potential federal legalization of marijuana and other forms of cannabis raise significant tax issues, including the following: (1) how much revenue are states likely to raise from cannabis taxes that states enacted at the time of state legalization? (2) how should state or federal cannabis taxes be designed? (3) at what rates should state or federal cannabis taxes be imposed? (4) how does the deduction disallowance rule of Internal Revenue Code § 280E impact the income taxation and structure of cannabis businesses? (5) to what extent do cannabis taxation and cannabis business regulation discourage compliance and encourage black market activity? The speakers on this topic panel, all of whom have written on cannabis taxation issues, will address some of these developing issues.
