True to a point. Just as you and I would look at a very nice house and think that they can afford to pay there bills or at least have the money to pay them. Then you go and do an estimate at a run down house and wonder if they will pay you or not.

We dont care if they pay the ticket or not...No Pay = future warrant = future arrest.


I myself like to pull over people/companies and let them know and give them a chance to correct the problem(s). I also have a time limit I give them to correct the problem. This still does not give them the right to run around in violation. It gives them time with ME, not what the law says. Of course there are certain things that will place you out of service and I have no control over that.

Yeah cause they know we will have to pay so we can stay in business, unlike the others where chances are it's just side money anyway and not there livelyhood.

service tax

That tax business really gets under my skin. Not that 2% is huge, but its the principle of the matter. Didnt politicians ever take an economics class. I mean of all the things they can think of doing when our MI economy is sucking, they decide to tax people more. Makes no sense to me. Laissez Faire is what we need, not more taxes.

I know this wasn't directed at me but maybe I can help a little.

It would mean nothing to register your business name as an LLC or INC unless you actually plan to go thought the rest of the process of setting up an LLC or INC. There is more to an LLC/INC than just the name.

If you are a sole prop. there is no real need to get a separate tax id, you can use your SSN. It might be smart to get one to keep your SSN off paperwork that may be floating around.

i'll tell you where the 2% will be a pain is in service business like my winter job running a ice rink. Every person that comes in is a even 3 dollars, now it will be 3.06. What a pain in the butt.
