dont know about Mi. but donw here in Texas our tax rate is 52%

and it looks like we LCO's will be collecting tax shortly..

ours in a PITA... we have to pay for the service......

meaning we have to collect the tax from our services then pass it along to the IRS and pay a fee to do this.....
Dont even talk to people who cant purchase your product or service.........Dave Thomas.

All I can tell you is it will be nothing but a pain to handle taxes just like a retail store. Means we will need a tax id and report at least quarterly.

I can't wait!..........NOT!
