    Are you going to register as a (DBA) or incorporate?

    As far as the truck numbers go, I am not sure. Are they pesticide license numbers? Maybe dot numbers?

      Pa Act 132

      http://www.middletowntownship.org/ve...F5A2234%7D.PDF I THINK THIS IS WHAT I MEAN I AM NOT SURE. It says landscaper some exclusions. I have seen these numbers popping up on landscaper truck in my area and i think i do not need it now since i have made no previous revenue last year. I have a small nursery going with about 2000 plants mostly grasses. I sent a email to one of my state reps who has helped me out before i hope he gets back. Yes a state rep that does his job who know? I do not know yet how i am filing my biz DBA or incorporate. YOU have a great site here and i hope to contribute to it more thanks jeff

        From that pdf it says

        Landscape contractors (some excluded activities)
        LOL Why not list the excluded activities!

        I bet if you are mowing, it's excluded. But I would think to be on the safe side, they would need to be contacted for further information.

        Keep us posted on what you find. I am sure others are in the same boat.

              I think it comes down to if you just mow, you don't need to register. But if you do any kind of construction on the property, you do.
