Sales tax process begins for marijuana providers

The Montana Department of Revenue reminds medical marijuana providers to file their first Medical Marijuana Provider tax return and payment by Oct.15 The tax return and payment are for the quarter ending Sept. 30.
Montana’s Medical Marijuana Act, or SB 333, was passed by the 2017 Legislature and creates a tax on the gross sales of providers of medical marijuana products. The tax is 4 percent of gross sales up through the period ending June 30, 2018, and 2 percent for subsequent years.
Medical marijuana providers should file their tax returns electronically on the department’s website at
The department is accepting any method of payment for this tax, including cash, however, it is highly recommended to use electronic or non-cash payment methods. Providers can pay online when they file their return, or send checks and money orders to:
Montana Department of Revenue, PO Box 6169, Helena, MT 59604-6169.
Providers can also deliver a cash payment to a drop box in Helena. The department will not accept cash payments at any other locations. The drop box is located at the department’s downtown building, 340 N. Last Chance Gulch, Helena, MT 59601. The lobby is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., except on holidays.
