Before you put spade to earth you will need the proper and required documentation on a State, County and Municipal level. This includes Sales Tax, where applicable; certifications, if required; required level of liability and Workman's Comp insurance and all licenses and permits. By the time you get through all of the Red Tape, it will probably be Spring and you won't need to look elsewhere.

On the bright side, you should have to go through the 'Red Tape' only once. After that, maybe only yearly license renewals.

I disagree, it's easy, I have never run into any significant red tape, it is simply interstate commerce. it's not that hard, all you do is register with the states department of revenue and at that time they give you the details of your tax liability and procedure for submitting it. Go to the states web site where you will be doing the work for accurate info and it may be possible to register on line. some states will make it easy for the tax revenue.

States may have different requirements. Here in Florida, you need county license for each county in which you do business. Granted there are those that ignore this requirement, but there are penalties if you are caught unlicensed. I can think of nothing worse than being shut down in the middle of a project by a local official because of lack of a license.

Hmmm. I don't know about this. Your saying all of you work only in one county or have multiple bus licenses for each of the counties you work in?

My feeling on a business lic is that it is TOTAL bull. It doesn't make you any more competent or legit. It is just another tax these bastards can collect. And the more employees you have the more they nail you.
