Unique Challenges Require Unique Solutions

Grow and manufacturing facilities are expensive to build out and operate. Without proper accounting and tax planning, your expenses will increase even more in the form of a tax bill multiple times higher than it needs to be.

Maximizing deductions under 280E requires special planning for cultivation facilities


The only tax deductions allowable for a cultivation facility are those related to the costs of goods sold. For a cultivation facility, this can range from seeds and soil to staff and supplies. Failing to properly allocate expenses to cost of goods sold opens a business up to adjustments on an IRS audit.


Dark Horse CPAs meticulously review your business operations and suggest ways to maximize your tax deductions. We start every engagement by touring your facilities to properly document how and why certain parts of your operations and expenditures associated with them should be allocated to your costs of goods sold. This approach provides support for your deductions from day one – meaning you can rest comfortably knowing your tax returns can stand up to an IRS audit.

Vertically integrated cannabis businesses may hold multiple licenses under the same entity


From a financial perspective, it is imperative that income and expenses under the different license types are properly accounted for. Different license types have different tax rules for how to account for and deduct expenses for tax purposes. Additionally, maintaining separate financials for the separate licenses held will allow you to see how each portion of your business is performing.


We separate different licenses and activities by divisions in your financials so you can easily identify how the different divisions are operating at any time.
