Navigating the Federal-State Divide:

Here’s the catch: cannabis remains illegal at the federal level while states like Georgia are carving out their own legal frameworks. This situation creates a unique tax landscape where federal and state rules can conflict, leaving you scratching your head. Don’t worry, we’ve got the map.

Our Tax Toolkit for Cannabis Businesses:

  • Entity Selection: Choosing the right business structure – LLC, S-Corp, C-Corp – can significantly impact your tax burden. We’ll analyze your unique needs and recommend the most tax-efficient path.
  • Section 280E: This federal tax code disallows most business deductions for cannabis businesses. We’ll help you navigate its limitations and find ways to maximize your deductions within legal boundaries.
  • State and Local Taxes: Each state has its own cannabis tax regulations. We’ll stay ahead of the curve and ensure you comply with Georgia’s current and evolving tax landscape.
  • Cash Flow Management: With limited access to traditional banking, managing cash flow for cannabis businesses is crucial. We’ll develop strategies to ensure you have the funds to meet tax obligations and keep your business afloat.
  • Recordkeeping and Documentation: Accurate records are your lifeline in the complex world of cannabis taxes. No matter which states your cannabis business resides in, we provide the tax and accounting services you need to run your cannabis business.
