Welcome to our forum!

It depends on what kinds of services you are looking to offer. Have you come up with a list of them yet? Are you looking to spread fertilizers or pesticides? What about landscape installations?

There is a $75 a year fee for a dba? UGH! Does every state do this?

Not Every state, Because I paid Ten dollars to file, and I'm good for five years. I think that is crazy having to pay 125 to start then 75 to keep it?
