When to charge sales tax.

I am just starting and I've got all the paperwork except for my service vendors license and just wanted to know if I should be charging sales tax for the jobs I have now or wait till I get the vendors license.

You do know that you don't charge tax for "services" right? Only on any products you may purchase for the services; mulch, pavers etc.

Not sure if this is what you're asking

In Ohio you have to "collect" sales tax on all services, materials, etc related to landscaping/lawn care......

Getting your venders license is a quick trip to the state office.....go get it and start off right...

That's crazy, I didn't know it was different state to state. What is your tax rate in Ohio?

tax

if you antisipate making more then 5000 then you must file for and collect sales tax for the season, if you makde more then 5000 last year, you must charge sales tax,

i will be above the cap so have to start charging right away, and file your return paperwork on time
