How to: Claim Medical Cannabis on Your Taxes

It’s surprisingly easy!

  1. Log into your Licensed Producer’s website and find your order history. Do this for any LP you have ordered from in the 2017 tax year.
  2. You can print a copy of every order you placed in 2017 to keep in your personal files with a copy of your tax forms, or to send along to your tax auditor.
  3. Add up the total amount you spent on medical cannabis in 2017. Note that you cannot include items like vaporizers, baking mixes, pill machines, clothing, or other non-medical items you may have purchased from your LP.
  4. Put this total on your taxes in the medical expense field, along with any other medical expenses you have incurred throughout the year.
  5. You’re done! You will now receive the appropriate tax return for your medical expenses.
