    This will vary from state to state. I recommend you call your state dept of taxation or your accountant.

    Get the information right from the source.

    salting and plowing are not taxable in wi, supplies are taxable, you will pay the tax for salt and then you pass it along to the customer, you also pay tax on any snow equipment you purchase, and you will have to pay taxes on any help you hire, does not matter if they are full or part time.
