I am currently setting up my business for next year and I have a few ?'s. First, I am about to purchase a truck for a guy I work with, should I first get my DBA liscense, so I can write it off. Second, I plan on buying all new equipment. I have the money so that is not a prob. here is the list. All commerical 21' toro echo trimmer, edger sthil hand blower kawasaki hedge trimmer. I will be getting these in Feb. or March so they are not sitting in my garage. Also, i am thinking about getting my pesticide liscense, should I wait until I get customers that want it, or just be perpared. Also, what percentage to taxes do you solo ops. pay?
