Article XIV of the Missouri Constitution applies a 4% tax on the retail sale of marijuana for medical use sold at medical marijuana dispensary facilities within the state.


I received a dispensary license to sell medical marijuana. Do I need to register my business with the Missouri Department of Revenue?

Yes, licensed entities are required to register to file and remit all applicable taxes.

The medical marijuana 4% tax is included with the retail sales registration for the business. Businesses may register with the Department online at https://dor.mo.gov/registerbusiness/. If you have further questions, please email the Department’s registration section at businesstaxregister@dor.mo.gov.


When should I file and remit the medical marijuana 4% tax?

Medical marijuana dispensaries must file and remit their 4% medial marijuana tax to the Department on a monthly basis. The due dates for medical marijuana 4% tax returns will be the same as sales and use tax due dates. You can access the Department’s 2020 Tax Calendar for specific due dates.

The options available for filing and remitting the medical marijuana tax are listed below:
