I have a feeling I know a good bit about what I am getting into and one day I want this to be my career and have crews and the whole 9 yards....what a bad joke haha. Also I live in the crafton/Ingram rt 60 area (Robinson) I have a great location in my opinion! Anyways my real question is I will be going solo for awhile what legal matters do I need to address? General liability around 1mil? Is there a lisence(s) I need to cut grass and work flower beds and cut small trees? Also what about sales tax, does that need charged? I want to be 100% legit, any help, pms, will be greatly appreciated. I want to do this!

Don't quit your other job until you build your company. Maybe for the first year or half year invest what you make back into the company to grow and upgrade equipment. Gen liability for 1 mill/2mill aggregate is sufficient. I know a few of us use erie. Register a fictious name with the state (online) and get a pa contractors number (also online). Also don't be afraid to ask questions. I'm sure a lot of us have encounter the same issues/scenarios
