    Ok...I am realy new to the "lawn business". I have run other companies, just not a lawn care business. I'll just list the Questions.

    1. What licenses apply besides the standard business(city/county) license or known as a dba license.
    2. Do sales taxes apply considering its a service industry? I only ask this because in an auto detailing business I only had to charge If we waxed a car because then the customer was leaveing with a product.
    3. In Florida are there any special requirments to meet to open a lawn/landscaping business.
    4. Whos addvice should I seek on licensing & taxes, should it be accountant or attorney, or both?

    Thanks guys...that was a mouth full but I am looking forward to see the novels I get back. :)
