Hello,
Have a question on Taxes. I live in the Texas area were the sales tax is 8.25. The question is, If I estimate a job (mow a yard and so on) for 100 dollars, do I charge 108.25?
My girlfriends brother in law said that you cannot include sales taxes on services.

If you could, please give some input on how you include taxes so you will not get yourself in trouble.

Thanks for your time,
eazy

You don't need to tax residential lawns but any work you do for a commercial business you should be adding tax to and reporting that money to your collector.

Thanks for the early input. But, Why don't you have to charge sales taxes for residential lawns?

Thanks,

No sales taxes on labor in MI, either. But our fine liberal governor is working to change that.
