Cannabis Retailers "in select states" must collect an excise tax from their customers. Here is a list of states that currently have excise taxes as a part of their taxes:
- New York
If you have the "Excise Taxes" enabled, BLAZE will calculate these values for you based on the regulations of your specific state. These calculations can be found in a few different places:
- Purchase Orders
- Receive Metrc Transfers
- Batch Details
- Transaction Details
As operators, you have the ability to include these taxes in your listed "Retail Price" or not. By turning on the setting "[Default] Price includes excise tax," it will be auto-enabled for all newly created products. You will want to confirm that this setting is also "enabled" through the individual products' profile. If this setting is enabled, your excise tax calculation will be displayed in parenthesis "(x.xx)."
Depending on your preferences/settings with including the taxes, you might need to visit the "Manage Receipts" section in your Current Shop Settings.
***Always consult a Professional / CPA / Attorney, before setting / changing your taxes ***
