Tell the IRS: Treat Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Like Other Businesses
The IRS is demanding that Harborside, one of California's largest medical marijuana dispensaries, hand over $2.5 million in taxes or close up shop for good.
It's not that Harborside hasn't been paying taxes. Instead, the IRS has decided the dispensary can't claim the same standard tax deductions every other business enjoys, like payroll, rent and workers' compensation.
If the goverment subjects other dispensaries to this absurd tax rule, they will be forced to shut down — eliminating jobs, gutting state tax revenues and denying sick people their medicine in the process.
