Cannabis Sellers Must Register with the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration

Sacramento, CA...Individuals planning to sell cannabis or cannabis products beginning January 1, 2018, must register with the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) for a seller’s permit. Cannabis cultivators, processors, manufacturers, retailers, microbusinesses and distributors who make sales are required to obtain and maintain a seller’s permit as a prerequisite for applying for a license with the Bureau of Cannabis Control, the Department of Food and Agriculture, or the Department of Public Health. It is easy and convenient to register online with the CDTFA. Individuals who already have a seller’s permit (including a permit previously issued by the Board of Equalization) do not need to register for a new one.




In addition, distributors of cannabis and cannabis products must also register with the CDTFA for a cannabis tax permit – which is separate from a seller’s permit – in order to report and pay the two new cannabis taxes to the CDTFA starting in January 2018. Registration for the cannabis tax permit will be available on November 20, 2017.

 

Beginning January 1, 2018, two new cannabis taxes will be in effect:

 
  • A 15 percent excise tax is imposed on purchasers of cannabis and cannabis products. Retailers are required to collect the excise tax from the purchaser and pay it to the cannabis distributor.
 
  • A tax on the cultivation of cannabis that enters the commercial market is imposed on cultivators, who are required to pay the cultivation tax to either a distributor or manufacturer depending upon the nature of the transaction. The cultivation tax rates are $9.25 per dry weight ounce of cannabis flowers, and $2.75 per dry-weight ounce of cannabis leaves.
 

Individuals who operate a cannabis business that does not make taxable sales will need to obtain a certification letter from the CDTFA indicating that their business does not require a seller’s permit. The certification letter will be available through the CDTFA online registration system beginning November 20, 2017. Individuals may also sign up for CDTFA Cannabis ListServ notifications for the latest information on how to comply with the new laws related to cannabis businesses.

 

More information about the permits necessary to collect these new taxes is available in this special notice and in the Tax Guide for Cannabis Businesses.

Important Notice: Recent legislation created the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) to administer the taxes and fees previously collected by the Board of Equalization, with the exception of Property Tax, Alcoholic Beverage Tax and Insurance Tax. Additional information concerning this recent change can be found atwww.boe.ca.gov and ​at www.cdtfa.ca.gov. For more information on other taxes and fees in California, visit the California Tax Service Center.

      Nope. In fact due to some of Colorado's rules and regulations, not all of that promised money gets to the schools at all. They get relatively little to benefit class size, materials, extra teachers, programs, enrichment, music, art, drama, STEM, and all the other things they really need. They can use this money for some facility work. Please do not mislead.

    The black market will absolutely flourish. Why? No taxes in a black market. Therefore, the illegal grows will stay. Therefore we must have regulation. Therefore we must have enforcement.

    Careful. You are not doing your homework. We will in fact, not get "all that money" you promise, with nothing to back it up. Our schools are highly regulated, even more so than in Colorado. Their chief complaint will be ours. Instead of using these potential funds for class size reduction, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), art, drama, music, sports programs, enrichment, etc, including Teachers' salaries, we will likely be severely restricted to using it for facilities and other pre-prescribed uses. So please don't mislead.

I believe in strict cannabis control; make sure you pack the bowl carefully to not spill any and be wasteful.

Finally, this industry is going to be managed like every other commercial enterprise. The entire chain will be taxed and monitored.

Ideally, with Track and Trace, every plant will get tagged as soon as it goes into soil. Output per plant will be logged; the product will be traced from harvest to final retail product and sale.

Get the growers into the correct zoning for commercial activities. Get strict regulations in place to ensure the public, environment, and adjacent business are protected and the cannabis operations are located appropriately.

All rules should be applied to both the medical and the recreational sales as both are 'commercial', i.e., for profit.

    This utopian situation does not exist. The State of California has not rolled out all of this program or ironed out the wrinkles in what it has. Patients have no iea where their medicine is sourced, There are literally no effective testing protocols for "medicinal" marijuana. Our dispensaries keep flunking independent testing, showing bacteria, mold, and fungus. Please.

      But with more laws in place we know that all growers will respect and obey the letter of the law. Make it all illegal.
