charging sales tax

when bidding a new job do you find it better to lump the sales tax in and give them 1 price or go for what you want to bid and then explain you have to charge tax so it will be bid price + tax.

Check your state law, in most state it must be a separate line item.

PA law says lawn mowing and anything you do to a lawn is taxable. For my customers, I give them a price and tell them plus tax. Most are shocked because the last guy didn't charge the tax. The last guy didn't have a license either. I have had to show a couple customers the revenue code.

I figure all my prices including taxes if that is what you are asking, my invoices will include a base price + my state tax rate which brings it to the agreed on price.

I always give the customer the price and tell them plus tax. Some are shocked, some aren't.
