Taxnexus® Situs™ Cuts Through California Cannabis Confusion

The news is filled nearly everyday about new cannabis taxes and regulations in our home state of California. There are new cannabis taxes on the books nearly every week! Any cannabis business who wants to be compliant is facing a huge challenge just to figure out what the cannabis taxes are in effect at its store or cultivation facility.

At Taxnexus, our mission is to be the leading experts on cannabis taxation, and to make it easy for cannabis taxpayers to keep compliant with simple web technology.

We have just completed our Spring 2018 survey of California cannabis taxes, and we’ve got some scary news. There are close to 500 different cannabis taxes now specified in city and county ordinances in California!

All cannabis tax stakeholders in California are now faced with a crushing information seeking burden. And, how are all the hundreds of towns, cities and counties in California with cannabis ordinances going to get out the news about their new taxes to the dispensaries, cultivators, manufacturers, distributors and delivery services?

At Taxnexus, we feel like this is a dangerous formula for financial noncompliance and can threaten the growth and development of the legal cannabis industry in California. That is why it is our mission to get the news out there and to help software developers get tax information into their apps as quickly as possible.
