Here in PA some landscaping is taxed, some is not. Makes things confusing sometimes. Mostly if it is a service, like mowing, then its taxable. New installs that improve the property are not taxable. On the service end, mowing is taxable, but trimming of shrubs isn't. Both seem to be services to me! Like most states snow plowing isn't taxable. Our Governor wants to reduce the state tax from 6% to 4% and add 74 new items to the tax list, don't know if any of the 74 are related to our business. IMO, lower the rate to 3% or 2% and make everything taxable. Would make things easier for everybody. I have had customers complain when I charge tax because their previous LCO didn't. I tell them I can't explain why their previous LCO didn't charge, but it is a taxable service. I carry a copy of the state code with me just in case!
