  • Tax

    Just curious....

    How much tax are you guys forced to charge your clients on let's say $100?

    It's about $15 for me.

    -

    Have you ever had any problems where a client refused to pay, because your price was too high after taxes?

    I was quoting without tax say $100 then $12.70 in tax added but I got a lot of complaints about it. Like I was price gouging and trying to add charges to the bill. It wasnt just residential but a hotel too. They sent the payment in without tax. I had to speak with them to get them to pay taxes. Which is kinda funny because when the rent a room they add taxes afterwards just like I do.

    So I started putting the tax in the quotes to eliminate this. Sometimes I might be higher because of it but the customer will probably notice I was the only one charging tax. If they have half a brain theyll figure out I'm the legit one.

      What kind of services do you guys have to charge tax on? In my state I don't have to charge tax on services such as mowing, fert, etc. If you have to charge tax on every service that would deff suck.

                We are lucky that we don't have to charge a service tax.

                They tried to do a service tax a few years ago, it got passed but didn't even get to take effect, because the out cry from businesses made law makers repeal it.

                  It was a pretty big issue getting some folks to pay sales tax when I first started. Some even told me it was illegal to charge sales tax. They were wrong of course. Hilariously wrong.

                  Mowing is taxable in PA. Leaf removal and snow removal is not.

                    Man, I am thankful mowing is not taxable in my state of Nebraska. I can see how that would complicate things. We do have to charge tax on pesticides applications such as grub control... but not fert or herbicides. mowing, snow removal, is tax free but if I remove leafs from a gutter on a house its taxable, same as powerwashing a drive is no tax, powerwashing a house is....

                      I used to pay quarterly but made too much last year and they moved me to monthly. If you make over $10000 taxable in a quarter you get moved to monthly. In PA you make sales & use tax payments online.

                        in jersey if you have 500.00 or more in any one month of sales tax collected you have to go from quarterly to monthly.

                        i beleive my state did not even have state income or sales tax prior to 1979 and the only tax you paid was federal just goes to show you how bad and how fast the politicians screwed my state up.

                          Yeah, NJ is 7% buy only on labor. No tax on material if you pay the tax when you but it or it would be double taxation. Also, disposal fees are non taxable. Gets crazy. We were audited a few years ago.

                              Here in my part of Iowa it's 7% on services if you make over $5,000 a year.
                              So it would $7.00
