California Lawmakers Offer Tax Amnesty to Pot Shops | Officer.com

Estimating that two-thirds of the medical marijuana stores in California have failed to pay sales taxes, state officials on Tuesday took a carrot-and-stick approach to persuade pot shops to pay the $106 million owed.With the state preparing to license medical marijuana shops in 2018, the Assembly sent Gov. Jerry Brown a bill Tuesday that would establish a tax amnesty program to help bring scofflaws into compliance with the law.The measure would allow medical cannabis sellers to temporarily avoid a penalty of 25 percent to 50 percent on late taxes but would block the issuance of new state licenses to any continuing violators.
