Key tax rates for the cannabis industry in California won’t change for the remainder of 2021. The CA Dept. of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) has announced that the markup rate for the cannabis excise tax will remain at 80% through Dec. 31, 2021. This is the rate which is used by distributors to compute the average market price of cannabis or cannabis products sold or transferred to a cannabis retailer (in an arm’s-length transaction). The CDTFA is responsible for determining the cannabis markup rate every six months.
