    But when do you place bids? I thought you would submit them in February or early march.

    I just submitted about 40 unsolicited bids to companies around me last week. With the temps warming up and the grass popping in the next few weeks I figure it's a good time to.

    What pre-emerge are you all putting down on beds this year? I normally just hit then with round up as they pop up.

    Anyone now a good trailer repair place besides Croft? Every time I call them they are 3 days out and want me to leave my truck and trailer with them for a week for a pretty basic repair job.

    Truck, trailer, and hitch located in Grandview. I was there last week without an appointment and they got me in right away.

    I've searched the dept of revenue and read multiple documents as to the correct way of dealing with sales tax. Last year I paid sales tax when I purchased pesticides etc from suppliers and factored the price into what I charge my customers as a flat rate. From what I've read it appears I should be purchasing pesticides tax exempt from suppliers and then charge customers sales tax on the labor and product. If this is the correct method what tax exempt form do I need to provide suppliers? I've searched and searched for the correct tax exempt form with no luck. My tax accountant claims I did it correctly last year but according to the DOR she's incorrect. How do you all go about this? Thanks in advance.

    If you owned a farm, then yes you can purchase on "Tax Exempt", there is an acreage size but I don't remember that. As an applicator performing a service, you do not need to charge them a sales tax. You only charge sales tax if you are reselling them the product but not as a service, which you are selling them, a service, "Fertilizing".
