I'm looking for business licence requirements in the State of Minnesota. Nothing there except for DOT landscapers and Chemical application.

Is it possible that this industry is not regulated in the "State where absolutely nothing is allowed"?

Great forum, lots to learn here.

I'm in northern Wisconsin and Wis only requires a seller's permit for lawn care in order to collect and pay taxes. A chemical license is required if you are applying anything other than straight fertilizer.

I too am an LLC.

You're good to go for mowing. Just remember to charge sales tax and pay it back to the state quarterly. Good luck. I can't seem to win a stinkin bid this year. And my prices are the same as last year!!! Yet, everything else has gone up.

Sales tax on a service business?
Yup. Check out the state tax site. Some landscape jobs you cannot charge sales tax but mowing you have to. Plowing you don't. Doesn't make a lot of sense but it is what it is. Don't get caught without collecting and paying. BIG fines for that.

Damnit, someone has to come on here from WI and reply before me! LOL.

But yeah, all we need is a seller's permit and Lawn Care IS taxable... I get funny looks from customers when I tell them that, so I pull out a copy of the regs from the IRS that clearly state this.

But snow removal is NOT taxable - go figure...

Of course, check the laws in MN to see what they require.

Good to see you're doing it right by being insured, registered, etc...
