After the passage of Measure A, the Sonoma County Cannabis Business Tax on March 7, 2017, businesses engaged in the cultivation or manufacturing of cannabis/cannabis products within the unincorporated areas of Sonoma County are required to pay taxes. These tax rates are based on several factors including license type and business segment.
Our goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible. To that end, the Auditor-Controller-Treasurer-Tax Collector will provide information relating to how the tax will be applied and how parties interested in operating a cannabis business can pay their taxes. Information covered will include: tax rates, tax forms and due dates, FAQs, and the ability to schedule an appointment with the Tax Collector’s office to pay taxes.
Information about cannabis tax collection efforts can be found on the County's cannabis website.
