Paying marijuana retail taxes

Learn about the process for paying the marijuana taxes in Massachusetts.

When a taxpayer completes the licensing process through the Cannabis Control Commission, and receives the final license (not the provisional license), the taxpayer will then register on MassTaxConnect to file returns and pay taxes.  

To pay taxes, the taxpayer will choose to pay electronically from a bank account or with a credit card through MassTaxConnect, or with cash. If a taxpayer chooses to pay with cash, they will choose "cash voucher" from their Marijuana Retailer account on MassTaxConnect. The Cash Payment Instructions will direct the taxpayer to call for an appointment  24 hours in advance for one of the cash counter locations. After making the appointment, the taxpayer will receive detailed instructions for paying with cash, including location information, parking details, and hours of operation.
