Entrepreneurs hoping to get involved with medical marijuana in Arizona can get the low-down on the complex tax situation for cannabis companies at a seminar this weekend.

The 280e Reform Team – a group of national medical cannabis leaders and professionals focused on educating the industry and public about MMJ tax issues – will host its next seminar this Saturday at the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale. The seminar will outline effective strategies dispensaries can use to handle IRS audits and handle tax issues in general.

The team has been hosting such gatherings in MMJ states such as California, Colorado, Washington and New Mexico.

The Arizona seminar is of particular interest because the industry there is still forming and there’s a lack of local know-how and expertise on these issues. Presenters include tax expert Henry Wykowski and Harborside Health Executive Directory Steve DeAngelo (both of whom will also speak at our upcoming National Marijuana Business Conference in November) as well as tax pro Hank Levy.

“Having been involved in the business planning and application process for over two dozen not-for-profit dispensaries throughout Arizona, we see great value in this event if you have submitted one or more dispensary application or if you are involved in the dispensary portion of the Arizona Medical Marijuana program in another capacity,” said Moe Asnani, a partner in the firm Arizona Dispensary Solutions.

The seminar costs $399 and includes a drink at a social gathering after the event (enter the code DISPENSE for a 25% discount). You can register here.
