Understanding the ins and outs of tax code 280E is of the utmost importance for cannabis accountants in keeping their clients compliant. Properly minimizing our client’s tax liability is what we do best, right?

Yes, but there’s more to it. The role that accountants play in the cannabis industry involves stepping out of our comfort zones and into spaces where our duties often overlap with those normally reserved for operations or legal departments.Cannabis accountants are not just there to file taxes or keep books; we also must understand licensing rules and regulations, corporate entities, how to manage inventory and cash controls, and much more. 

Our upcoming special guest, attorney Kenneth Ford, specializes in the cannabis industry and brings years of experience in corporate litigation and industry compliance and tax.
