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.
