    two pesticide inspectors for the entire state of nj, only time they come around is if there's a complaint...and it's usually to bust the stones of the guys that are legit! the only ones i've heard doing random field inspections are nj dept. of labor. they're broke and they need more money so landscapers are def an easy target!

    The only thing enforced about the stupid Contractors license is the renewal!

    It is a joke

    dep is out in force (as in the countys hazmat team has been given authority to enforce regs) i know of three people who where stopped in monmouth county last week, two made out well, the third one didn't (three violations). everyone better be on the up and up. they are checking everything. remember any pesticide applied (round up, treflan, snapshot, etc.) you need a license. lots of landscapers don't think they need a pest. license for this.

    Let me ask this question one more time

    Do you charge customers for taxes on all services in NJ ? I been figuring out taxes in my quotes but have no clue if I am suppose to charge tax or not

    I know on grass cutting you do what about planting ? mulch ? I mean I get charged taxes at the yard so they should pay it back no ?

    what about pavers gravel topsoil etc ? mixed info some say it is capital improvement and some say its not !

    And do you just file taxes quarterly online ? like any other business ?


    edit : google is my friend

    Anything that is hardscaping is NON taxable. That would be Pavers, Fencing, Ponds, etc.

    You do need to charge sales tax on any landscape work. That would be mowing, trimming, mulching, plant design and installation, or any other landscape oriented work. Then you are only supposed to charge tax on the labor portion of the work. Not the full invoice.

    This is my understanding of sales tax but there is so much crap I could be off for all I know.

    And for filing you have to file quarterly but if your sales tax collections are more than $500 a month you have to file monthly.
