    You must collect and pay Sales tax from everyone except:

    • landscaping
    • installing sod
    • planting trees, bushes, or other types of plants
    • planting flower or vegetable plants
    • cleaning or maintenance of an outdoor pond
    • snow shoveling or snow plowing
    • applying ice-melt or sand to driveways, sidewalks, or parking lots
    • services by a person who is not in the business of providing these services. Being “in the business” includes but is not limited to soliciting sales, advertising, and entering into written contracts to provide services. For example: A person mows the grass for a next door neighbor for pay. Unless the person is employed by a business to perform this service or has established his or her own business, the charge is not taxable.
