The legislature approved House Bill 4010, (HB 4010), during the 2022 legislative session. HB 4010 requires processors of kratom, or kratom products, to register with the Department of Revenue to distribute, sell, or offer Kratom products for sale beginning July 1, 2023.
The Department of Revenue is currently in the program development stage creating administrative rules, publications, and information for the program.
Do I need to register?
Section 3 requires all kratom processors to register with the department. The legislation defines “processor" as any person that sells, distributes, or exposes for sale kratom products on a wholesale basis to a retailer.
What constitutes a kratom product?
Section 2 defines “kratom products" as: food, food product, food ingredient, dietary ingredient, dietary supplement or beverage for human consumption containing any part of the leaf of the plant Mitragyna speciosa.
The legislation requires all processors to register with the Department of Revenue for sales occurring after July 1, 2023. The department will provide more information about registration beginning in early 2023 including the amount of the annual registration fee.
The registration will be completed and submitted electronically through Revenue Online.
