    You will probably catch flak from some. Tell them you know they want their lawn man to be legal and not some kind of scrub.

    Tell them it just came to your attention that you were to have been collecting sales tax for services the entire time and now you must make good. You are clear on what is a taxable service in PA, aren't you?

    Hi Stringblade,

    I agree. Nice and simple.
