Connecticut Rules Marijuana Testing Services Not Taxable

Feb 1st, 2016

The Connecticut Department of Revenue Services ruled that testing services for medical marijuana were not taxable.

A company provided testing services used to measure chemical components of medical marijuana to determine its safety and potency. Connecticut does not tax testing services in general. Connecticut also exempts services used to determine whether a product, substance, or element will have negative effects on human health. The Department pointed out that this exemption is an alternative basis for finding that the marijuana testing services were not taxable.
