Nooo..You charge sales tax according to where the lawn is. It isn't like a barber where they bring something in to have cut. It doesn't matter where your office, mailing address, or the-place-you-park-your-mower is. You're doing business where the lawn is.

My wife files taxes for 3 counties, plus municipalities.
