Your customers don't/shouldn't care about what Uncle Sam does/doesn't want from you.

If you have to collect city, county, or state taxes, that's another matter. You'll just have to add that amount onto the bill, you will be acting as a sales tax collector.
But, check with some people locally to see if you even do that in your area. A simple phone call (if there is such a thing) to the local state/city/county tax office will answer that.
If you don't want to call them, call a local LCO and inquire about pricing.

You may want to consider trying some professional information on cost recovery to determine your charging methods. It is very important to know what the comp. is charging, but know what your break-even point is for your company to determine your minimum charge. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Either way, Good luck!
