Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions Comments on IRS Fines for Cannabis Businesses

LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC Bulletin Board, REFG), a leader in technological solutions for the medical cannabis industry, commented today on the recent tax court challenge to the Internal Revenue Service practice of assessing a 10 percent penalty on federal employee withholding taxes paid in cash.

"Medical cannabis businesses unable to access banking services are effectively forced into this situation," said Sean Hullinger, chief legal officer for Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions. "Here we have a company that wants to pay their taxes and is being fined for things they cannot control."

Despite their best efforts, state lawmakers and regulators have been unable to provide the financial and banking services the industry needs. Earlier this year, Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions announced it found a legal framework alleviating federal and banking industry concerns regarding the medical cannabis industry. The solution enables banking and payment processing for the legitimate medical cannabis market.

"We are in the process of providing the medical cannabis industry with the solution to these problems," said Jeremy Roberts, CEO of Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions. "I fully expect our fully developed platfor to be available in each state where medical cannabis is legal."
