Everything I would love it if I could find something that worked all in one Right now I enter the deposit in an excel worksheet where we separate the price out entering the base price and tax Then I enter the payment again in the customer's account.

The literally HUNDREDS of times this same question has been posted you couldn't find anything in a search?
Real Green Service Assistant (I just switched to this in July)
qxpress (just switched FROM this...don't recommend as their support has fallen WAY off)
Clip
Jobber
Service Autopilot
Wavesync
Evergreen
Plenty more

And get this.....I found them all by doing a search using the word....Wait for it.... SOFTWARE.

Gopher isn't bad for the price, you pay for it once and thats it. i am pretty sure it was under $300. No support though. No upgrades in sight i'm sure. Its fairly easy to use, and has alot of good features. I've been sticking with that, and i like it for now.

I also used the jobber trial, its a great software too. It just wasn't a good fit for me right now.

I use Gopher and QuickBooks. Works alright. Only problem I have is that sometimes Gopher gets a database error and won't open. Can be annoying when you want to get some work done.
