Osmann,
Do you have that business name registered? I would not recommend going any further until you do. What if there is another Osmann company out there? Just be legit if you are going to start running under a business name. Its not worth the risks.
I've been reading some of your posts. Dude, for heavens sakes listen to the guys on here and follow their advice. They have walked the same road you have. I have been there done that also. Generally speaking the advice they give comes from a lesson learned GOOD OR BAD. Most of the time its the latter.

Looking good! I am glad you got a P.O. box too. Feels good to be legit doesn't it?
Anyway next step, register with your state & county and collect sales tax. You may want to read up on your states regulations and such.

yes it does feel good! i feel like a business now! can;t wait til next season i hope to have a few more customers with the heavy advertising i will be doing. I used legal zoom.com anybody else use that? They are suppose to be mailing me all the info 10 business days. No hurry because in Wisconsin the mowing season is almost over. The PO Box was very cheap I believe i paid 50.00 for a medium size box (big enough for invoices etc) for a whole year. Hopefully by next year i will be able to buy a exmark walk behind.
