US (CA): Hanford cannabis taxes increased

Nearly three years after first imposing the tax, the Hanford City Council raised the city’s cannabis taxes to the maximum allowable levels under city ordinance on Thursday.

Since the tax was first enacted on Jan. 1, 2019, the retail sales tax rate was four percent. That rate will now rise to 6 percent, per the council’s directive. 

The testing laboratory tax rate is also moving from one percent to 2.5 percent of gross receipts, while the distribution tax rate is increasing from two percent to three percent. 

Manufacturing, processing, non-storefront, and any other non-specified cannabis businesses will see their rates rise from 2.5 percent to 4 percent of gross receipts.
