Frequently Asked Questions

Is payroll an HR function in the hemp industry?


Payroll processing is one of the essential functions of HR because the two functions are closely connected and intertwined. When it comes to the cannabis industry, payroll is more complex and more difficult to grasp. This is why it is of crucial importance that payroll and other HR functions are handled by experienced consultants who understand the intricacies of payroll compliance, including payroll taxes for cannabis industry workers.

At Green Leaf Business Solutions, we focus on the bigger picture, which is why we offer tailored packages of integrated payroll and HR consulting for cannabis companies. We will track federal and state regulations for cannabis payroll processing in terms of minimum wage, payday schedules, and recordkeeping to help you stay compliant.

What am I required to do for 280e and payroll?


We can handle your marijuana company payroll and taxes and help you navigate the 280e tax code. This code essentially penalizes cannabis industry entrepreneurs and forbids them from deducting ordinary business expenses from their overall taxable income. 

While cannabis businesses have been legalized, they are still federally illegal, which further complicates things such as payroll taxes for cannabis industry workers. No wonder this leaves cannabis entrepreneurs in every state which has legalized marijuana for recreational and/or medical use perplexed. 

One way to do this is to divide your business into two separate structures, one for cannabis production and distribution and compliance with the code and the other one for legal matters and technicalities. It is this other structure that would be entitled to all the ordinary tax deductions, including payroll.

As specialists in weed payroll compliance, we will help you gain a better understanding of your situation and plan your course of action to be ready for unexpected audits and avoid violations concerning cannabis industry payroll tax reporting while maximizing your deductions.

How do dispensaries pay employees?
