Tax Matters
  • Membership dues are a tax-deductible business expense, if you are a business, and membership in HFUU is related to your business, for example farming.  This has nothing to do with HFUU being tax-exempt.  However, if you are an individual, membership dues are not tax-deductible.
Publications
  • The New Leaf magazine (cannabis industry newsletter) is offering HFUU members the discounted, introductory subscription rate of #36/yr. as well a 20% off on advertising.
