Oregon – Oregon’s Recreational Pot Shoppers Adjust to 25 Percent Sales Tax

http://www.oregonlive.com – Noelle Crombie – January 11, 2016

“On Jan. 1, after a three-month tax holiday, Oregon imposed a 25 percent sales tax on recreational marijuana sales. The tax will eventually be replaced with a 17 percent state tax once the Oregon Liquor Control Commission assumes control over recreational marijuana sales later this year.

The agency won’t begin collecting the tax until February. On Friday, officials said only about half of dispensaries selling recreational marijuana have registered with the Department of Revenue, a state requirement.”
