    I know this question has been asked but I couldn't find it in the Fl Section of the forum.. I do lawns in my neighborhood on the side. I'm not talking small 1/4 acre lots, I do upscale yard about 5 acres in size and lots of trees. I make pretty good money doing it as a side-job but I see where I could be making a lot more. I don't want to be like all the other starters who advertise a little and start making routes without a license or anything. I just don't know where to start. Will the Tax Collectors office help me with everything such as occupational license and getting a business name established? :usflag:

    Yes and they'll give you paperwork to register your fictitious name with State if you go that route. Where r you located?
