Okay, thanks for the advice. However, I am not trying to go buy a bunch of equipment or undercut anyone for that matter...
I already have my Honda Pushmower and other needed equipment. I live in a large neighborhood with small 1/4 acre lawns where I am well acquainted with a number of the residents and could easily obtain work. I don't see how I could not earn money if I am just working my neighborhood with equipment I already have and no overhead minus fuel and other misc items.
I simply asked a question concerning being legitimate so I don't run into tax issues down the road.
