This course has been updated for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. TCJA made a major change to the cannabis tax area. This course will also focus on recent cases and IRS administrative guidance; decreasing taxable income of legal marijuana growers, processors, and retailers; methods for allocating deductions when a marijuana business and another business are operated by the same entity; and what costs may be capitalized by type of operation (that is, grower vs. processor vs. retailer). We'll also discuss which types of entities work best for cannabis businesses.
