Nina Marino, Speaker

Bitcoin and other digital currencies have sparked controversy and interest among regulators, prosecutors, investors, economists, merchants, and consumers alike. And virtual currency increasingly appears to be becoming a tool that businesses cannot afford to ignore. What potential do these currencies offer to merchants, payment processors, financial institutions, and other businesses? What impact will Bitcoin have as a form of payment, a method of value transfer, an asset, and even a liability? How will Bitcoin be treated in different contexts by the SEC, CFTC, IRS, FinCEN, and other regulatory agencies? This panel will explore these questions and more through discussion among a diverse panel of participants from industry and government.

ABA Webinar

The Tax Consequences of the Legalization of Marijuana

Nina Marino, Moderator

Federal Law makes the distribution of marijuana a crime. Some state laws say otherwise. The convergence of federal and state law in the world of the legalization of marijuana has raised interesting tax and compliance issues. Topics to be discussed include whether banks can engage in financial transactions with marijuana dispensaries, what cash and SAR reporting obligations are there for dispensaries and the nontraditional banks they engage with, and how are the IRS / dispensaries reacting to the Tax Court decisions disallowing a dispensary's tax deductions for operating expenses under IRC 280E (citing the illegality of trafficking in a controlled substance). The panel will also discuss whether those in the marijuana dispensary business owners need to file 5th Amendment tax returns when reporting their income to the IRS.
