    Hello all,

    Im looking to start a lawn care business soon in my area (just the basic planting flowers/ mowing lawns) and i was wanting to know if anyone from Texas knows if you need to be Licensed or Bonded ?

    I tried searching everywhere but couldn't find anything.

    Also for those who carry sales tax certificates do you only need to apply for one if you make over $5,000 within the given year ?

    thanks in advance

    Try this link http://business.texasonline.com/category.jsp?language=eng&categoryId=2.3

    it should get you in the right area and the tax is based on what your gross revenue was for the past quarter really screwy the way that they have it set up also you have to charge diferent tax for differnent areas Good luck and welcome to the glamous life of the self employed twj721
