    When you guys give a quote for a lawn, is it understood that you will add on tax to that number? Or do you give what you think is a good priceand then pay the tax from it?

    What type of tax are you asking about? Sales? In most states, sales of services is not subject to tax. Do you speak of federal and state income tax?

    Ohio does tax services, flake to answer your question mainly I quote then tack on tax, but I also will take the tax out of the price too.

    assuming you are talking sales tax, check your state laws regarding collection of tax for certain services. Every state is different.

    I would always quote your taxable services as price + tax. Never give a flat amount and back out the tax, why would you want to do that to yourself?

    In nys sales tax has to be added onto the bill... you can't just "eat" the tax and pay it from what you charge.
