Hi all, I am a rookie who is about to start my 2nd season of lawn care and landscaping. When I gave my customers estimates/prices at the start of last season, I did not factor in New York State sales tax (.08125%) If my labor and costs were $35 for the job, that is what I charged and did not add NY sales tax to that price. My accountant made me realize recently when I filed my taxes that my profits were hit hard after sales tax was figured and collected by the state. As I contact my customers at the start of this season, I was thinking about writing a letter saying the following. Please share your thoughts.... Dear Mr.XXXXX, I hope you had an enjoyable holiday and winter season...While there will be no increase in price for your weekly lawn service, I will now be required to charge the New York State sales tax of .08125% The price of your weekly service will now be $37.85... ***the previous price was 35*** ... What do you guys think? Thanks!
