    I have just finished my first year of college in Landscaping. I have been mowing since i was about 13. I have about 5 accounts, but now I am looking to expand. My current accounts are neighbors and family friends, but the last few weeks I have been getting referals from them. What is the process for going legit? Do I need to get a DBA, then insurance. How much am I looking at for insurance. How about taxes, would those be filed under my company or would they go under my name. Im not looking to go big right now, but I am looking for some more accounts.

    Im in New York FYI.

    This is not intended to sound rude...

    There must be a hundred topics on this very conversation. I would suggest using the search feature and see the related topics. There are several topics that have a large thread explaining the processes and differences between LLC and Sole Proprietorship.

    Good luck.
