Tax Attorney Jennifer Benda - Court upholds IRS authority to investigate Colorado cannabis companies
October 23, 2020
Jennifer Benda, a tax and cannabis attorney with Denver-based Hall Estill, explained that taxpayers shoulder the burden of proof for providing correct information on their returns. However, the government "cannot mislead a taxpayer to obtain information that could be used in a criminal proceeding," she said. "The IRS has gone out of their way in all of these cases to avoid being accused of doing so."
