More Than Half of MT Marijuana Dispensaries Haven’t Paid State Tax

Montana marijuana providers appear to be moving a little slower than normal when it comes to following the law. According to Mary Anne Dunwell from the Montana Department of Revenue, taxes for the months since July were due on October 15th and so far, some payments are quite high.

“It’s about $7.5 million in provider gross revenues,” Dunwell said. “About 315 providers have reported and paid the tax. The average payment was about $800, but there are some exceptions, we had a handful of providers who remitted more than $10,000 in provider tax, one paid more than $30,000.”

Dunwell says more than half of registered providers still hadn’t paid tax as of Friday, five days after the bill was due.
