Cannabis Business Taxes

Cannabis Tax Due Dates

On April 5, 2022 the Board of Supervisors approved a resolution extending the Cannabis Business Tax Payment Deadlines for Cannabis Cultivation from January 31, 2022 and April 30, 2022 to May 31, 2022. Cultivators will have until May 31, 2022 to pay the 1st installment/2nd quarter AND the 2nd installment/3rd quarter without penalties or interest. 

This extension does not effect the Cannabis Business Tax Payment due date for Cannabis Supply Chain Operations (Retail/Dispensary and Manufacturing) which is April 30, 2022. Supply Chain Operators will have until April 30, 2022 to pay the 2nd quarter. The 3rd quarter tax deadline is April 30, 2022. 

Please note: These extensions do not effect the tax liability that is due in any way. The 4th quarter due date remains July 31, 2022.
