California ~ Sales and Use Tax: BOE Reminds Taxpayers That Medical Cannabis Tax Exemption Has Begun

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportThe California State Board of Equalization (BOE) reminds taxpayers that the passage of Proposition 64 (The Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act) at the November 8, 2016, election, exempts certain sales of medical marijuana from sales and use tax. Sales of medical cannabis to those who have a medical marijuana identification card (MMIC) issued on a county-by-county basis by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and a valid government-issued identification card are now exempt from sales and use tax.Consumers can obtain the CDPH-issued cards at their county health department at a cost that varies by county. A paper recommendation from a physician is not sufficient to qualify for this sales tax exemption. The county-issued MMIC will have the State of California seal and indicate whether the card holder is a “patient” or a “caregiver.” The card will also contain the patient’s or primary caregiver’s photo, a nine-digit ID number, a CDPH website to verify the ID number, an expiration date, and the name of the county that issued the card. Cards are valid for the duration of the physician recommendation or up to one year, at which time the card must be renewed. Retailers should retain the purchaser’s nine-digit ID number and expiration date, along with the related sales invoice or other record of sale, to support the exempt sale.Exempted products include medical cannabis, medical cannabis concentrate, edible medical cannabis products, and topical cannabis. These terms are defined in Business and Professions Code section 19300.5. Retailers should not collect sales tax reimbursement on qualifying exempt sales of medical marijuana. Retailers should claim a deduction on their sales and use tax returns for their qualifying exempt medical marijuana sales. Retailers may verify the validity of a nine-digit ID number on the CDPH website. Sales of recreational marijuana will not start until January 1, 2018. Such sales will be subject to sales tax and an excise tax. A cultivator tax will also apply to marijuana beginning on that date.News Release 92-16-G, California State Board of Equalization, November 17, 2016last_img read more

Increased Focus on Intelligence in Addressing Crime – PM

first_imgStory Highlights Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the police force will be making greater use of intelligence in addressing crime, moving away from the over-reliance on hard policing.As such, he said, increased focus will be placed on information gathering, data analysis and strategic planning, “to give them a more targeted approach to separate the criminals from the law-abiding citizens”.The Prime Minister was addressing the opening ceremony of a two-day Multilateral Crime Summit at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston on Thursday (June 15).He noted that the intelligence approach is even more important as the security forces ramp up their anti-crime measures to deal with the spike in the murder rate, which the Prime Minister said is of “grave concern” to the Administration.He said the Government will ensure that as it goes after criminals, the human rights of Jamaicans are protected and respected.“We will not compromise on that; we have to ensure that confidence is not eroded,” he assured.In the meantime, the Prime Minister welcomed the advice put forward by international experts in the security field, who, during the Summit, shared the various intelligence-driven strategies they employed in tackling crime in their countries.They are former New York Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner, Raymond Kelly; and Security and International Cooperation Advisor for Colombia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and former Head Chief General of the Colombian National Police, General Rosso José Serrano.The Summit, which is focused on ‘Combatting Crime in an Interconnected World’, is being put on by the Ministry of National Security, in partnership with the Canadian, Colombian, European Union (EU), United Kingdom (UK), and United States (US) Governments.It seeks to produce actionable opportunities to strengthen intelligence sharing at the community, national and international levels, in order to dismantle criminal organisations.The key outcomes for the Summit will include action plans resulting from the sharing of intelligence to boost cybersecurity, combat gang activity and fight the trafficking of drugs and firearms.A variety of experts from participating countries will also provide case studies and insight on combatting transnational criminal organisations during the event. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the police force will be making greater use of intelligence in addressing crime, moving away from the over-reliance on hard policing. He said the Government will ensure that as it goes after criminals, the human rights of Jamaicans are protected and respected. As such, he said, increased focus will be placed on information gathering, data analysis and strategic planning, “to give them a more targeted approach to separate the criminals from the law-abiding citizens”.last_img read more

Shopify CEO says will push back on shortseller report on next earnings

first_imgOTTAWA – Shopify Inc.’s chief executive says he’ll push back against a short-seller’s report questioning the company’s business model during the release of their next financial results.Company CEO Tobias Lutke tweeted that he looks forward to the next earnings call, expected in early November, where he’ll address the “short-selling troll” targeting Shopify.He further tweeted that “the irony of an outfit like Citron accusing any business of being a get-rich-quick scheme should not be lost on anyone.”Last week, short-seller Citron Research released a report claiming Ottawa-based Shopify was running what it called an overvalued get-rich-quick scheme, sending the stock down from near $150 a share to around $112 a share on Tuesday.The stock regained a bit of ground by mid-day Wednesday, up $4 to $119.76 for a 3.5 per cent gain for the day.Ottawa-based Shopify posted a defence of its business model to its website last Thursday, but didn’t specifically refer to allegations published by Andrew Left of Citron Research.last_img read more
