    I have been doing landscaping and construction since I was 14 now 22 so I pretty much know how to run an affective business. My problem is that I dont really understand the paperwork part of it. I am starting out on my own this summer and dont know what I need to satisfy local and federal goverments (taxes, licences, etc). Basically so I am legal and wont get into any trouble in the future. Also what should I be looking for in my research to start and run a productive and very profitable business in the future. If I have left any valuble questions out please let me know.
    Thankyou -newbie-

    Any book store should either have it or can order it.

    I know amazon.com has it as well

    Hi srx1211,

    That is a great book. Did you try your local library?
