Hey everyone. I'm considering getting involved in lawn maintenance initially on a part time basis. What are the advantages and disadvantages of applying for a business license verses just giving yourself a company name and going from there? Would the tax write-off of expenses make having a business license a smart move, or would having to report the income and pay taxes quarterly or yearly offset the tax write-off benefits? What specific expenses are you allowed to write-off as business expenses when filing your tax return? Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
