New guy, learning alot from you guys on this site. I'm considering getting set up to accept credit cards ,is this something you guys do? Is there a benefit to it? I plan to start with residentials (part time) ,then who knows ,maybe someday full time. I am also wondering about legal issues (taxes ,insurance etc). I am doing this by myself so I guess I don't need to pay all the stuff you bigger companys with employees pay (like workers comp and unemployment). If you're just doing residentials do you guys pay taxes ,insurance etc. or are you doing some of this "under the table". I've read here that everyone is doing everything above board ,butI guess I'm a little skeptical. I'm not looking to start a bunch of trouble ,just curious. If a guy is doing 5-10 customers at say $30 on avg. ,and cutting 30 times a year I guess that would be one thing ,but what if starting out you only do a couple customers. Are you going to be paying out in taxes and ins. more than your taking in? Then at what point do you go "legal"? I already know the right answer ,just wanting some feedback as to what you guys do.
