In the 7 years Ive done lawn care I have got along fine with no license or insurance. This past year I decided to really try to look more professional so I got insurance and license. My license were like 75 bucks. Today I get a letter about 4 feet long wanting to know every piece of equipment I own and down to the gas cans! What size my shop is (I dont have one) and every minute detail they could think of. I am proud to say that I have reported every cent I ever made cash or check and give my inventory sheet to my cpa. The letter I got was from my local tax accessors office. I guess the greedy, low life bottom feeding SOBs aint happy till they suck every ounce of life out of you. Sorry for the rant, just really ticked me off as if Im not strugling hard enough. Until I got my license they never asked me a single thing. I should know by now that the more you tell the govt. the more they will shaft you. I was just trying to be honest about my biz. Tommorow they will get a call that I am no longer in biz, will go back to the way I was before.
