Marijuana Business Conference:

The Brager Tax Law Group has represented medical marijuana businesses since 2005. Given the increase in the number of states that have legalized marijuana, we are expanding our IRS tax dispute and tax litigation services to all states which have legalized the sale or distribution of marijuana. In addition to the fact that marijuana businesses are subject to the usual tax problems that every business has, they have additional issues because of the cash nature of business, plus they are limited in the deductions that they can take. If you know a marijuana business that needs our help with tax problems, please contact us. 

I am pleased to announce that I will be one of the featured speakers at the upcoming Marijuana Business Conference & Expo that is being held at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas from November 11th through 13th. My panel will discuss "Minimizing the 280E Bite, Dealing with the IRS & Preparing for an Audit." With all of the uncertainty around the tax complications and legalities of a cannabis business, you cannot afford to miss this session. Please come join me on November 13th from 1:30-2:20 p.m. PT.
The Marijuana Business Conference will feature 1,500 cannabusiness professionals from 30 states across America.  Over 50 expert speakers will be giving new presentations and Q&A sessions on advanced topics. Ralph Nader will be the keynote speaker at the conference.
