yup, and then she would reply appropriately.

That really is a good resource for MN greenies. That is very helpful that the dept of revenue has taken the time to publish it.

Maybe print a few or get them from your local tax office to share with other LCOs to be sure your competition knows the laws too.

And offer them for customers when bidding on big contracts. Distributing them when appropriate might get you a bid that would otherwise go to the guy with the lower bid without the appropriate tax included.... Having one on hand when the customer asks "why are you charing me tax?" will be a good selling point for professionalism..

good luck.
