Taxes continue to be one of the biggest challenges for marijuana businesses in the U.S., and Section 280E plays a large role in creating confusion for operators. But new documents, obtained by Marijuana Business Daily through a Freedom of Information Act, shed light on how the rule is applied.

In this exclusive webinar, MJBizDaily Senior Reporter John Schroyer will host two of the cannabis industry’s foremost legal experts on 280E as they try to unravel the complicated maze of regulations.

San Francisco-based attorney Henry Wykowski and Denver-based lawyer Nick Richards will discuss:

• How IRS agents approach cannabis business audits, including newly released details from the agency.
• The IRS’ history of auditing the marijuana industry.
• What all of this might portend for cannabis businesses, including a possible ramp-up of IRS attention on marijuana companies.
