Sales Tax in Nebraska

I was talking to my acountant a few days ago and guess what .

That's right Sales tax

Even though lawn care service is still exempt from charging sales tax But Pest control is not. Revenu departmant defines pest as " any living animal" and they list grubs as one of these pest sooo we will have to charg sales tax on grub and other insect control.

If we itemise it on the bill we just have to tas the grub control part but if its part of a program with one flat fee then we tax the whole amount

Have your accountant check into this. It will change a few things for me.

I guess the bright side is they don't call weeds pests ( even though herbicides are still pesticides). And this may give us a little leverage with costumers in proving we are operating legit were the guy that gave them the lowball price with out any sales tax included might not be.

Paul,

Wait till next year (2003)...they are going to try and push a tax on all lawn and landscape services.

Did you know that you have to tax the service of shrub planting but not tree planting? Bet a lot of "trees" get planted this fall and next spring!

I hadn't heard of a tax on planting services. Soon it will be sales tax on everything
Trying to convince the customers that it's not our fault is goin to be the toughest, and listening to them

Get this- we have to charge sales tax on the insecticide application but we still have to pay sales tax when we buy the product.

I'm not sure why our state decided it neded to tax all these new areas. But what started out simple could turn into an accounting nightmare.

Part of the budget shortfall is due to the lawsuit the state lost regarding the low level radioactive wastesite in Boyd county. Not to mention the welfare handouts...
