    I've been operating a 1 person (me) operation for a few years mowing yards. Next season I'm planning on expanding (hiring a supervisor & worker). I don't want to get in trouble with the IRS or other gov't agencies. I think that I need liability insurance and the guys need to be covered by workers comp? right? but else do I need? and what will it cost to pay taxes? or do I need to pay payroll taxes? How much do you pay a crew per yard (say average 5,000 sq ft)?

    I know it's a lot of questions, but I'm trying to plan in advance and stay out of trouble. I figure the folks on this site have more experince than me so I'm ready to learn.

    Thanks in advance
