Cannabis Excise Tax

Businesses subject to the Cannabis Excise Tax are those that have retail sales of adult-use cannabis. Those businesses also must register to pay GRT on their sales. Businesses already registered for GRT may use their existing accounts to pay GRT on adult-use cannabis sales, but they must also have a Cannabis Excise Tax account.

Medical cannabis sales are not subject to the Cannabis Excise Tax. Medical cannabis sales are eligible for the GRT deduction for prescription drugs.
