IRC §280E


Cannabis businesses are denied deductions or credits normally available to businesses since cannabis falls under the definition of a Schedule 1 substance. Until Congress removes marijuana from Schedule 1, IRC §280E tax limitations will continue to increase your tax bill drastically.


PriceKubecka can help you reduce the tax effects of IRC §280E by:


  • Understanding Cost Accounting
  • Helping implement efficiencies within your business to reduce G&A expenses
  • Business Tax Structuring/Service Line Separation
  • Proactive Tax Planning

IRC §471


What costs should be included in inventory?  Section 471 prescribes what costs associated with the production of property for the taxpayer’s use or resale and with the acquisition of property for resale must be capitalized, i.e. included in the property’s basis or inventory costs.


Since cannabis currently sits as a Schedule 1 drug, this has the potential to have drastic effects to your bottom line and your tax liability. There are specific impacts to the various vertical components within cannabis.


  • Growers/Cultivators
  • Producers/Processors
  • Retailers/Dispensaries
