In Kansas you only have to collect/pay sales tax on installation of goods (grass seed, shrubs, trees....etc.). I pay tax at the time on my purchase and just pass that on to the customer. It's called streamline bookeeping.

No sales tax in Florida, However last year they tried to decrease the tax amount but increase the services to be taxed. If this was passed Lawn Care would have been taxed. I think we still have a few more years before this passes.

In Suffolk County, here on Long Island, unless you are 16 and only mowing a few neighbors, mowing and all other aspects of maintenance are considered a "service" and are therefore taxable.....

Tennessee- no sales tax on lawn mowing...yet. They are in the process of "punishing" us for not passing a state income tax this year,by raising sales tax, closing state parks a couple days a week, etc, and the polititians will get to us sooner or later.
