Well, your company logo should consist of a plane... Because that is just awesome!

My grandmother has a thing for ex pilots btw...

She's been married to 3!

I've had a blast flying airplane since 1992 when I started learning how to. Now with all the lay-offs and soul searching for the past four years I'm commited to making this venture get off the ground.

I got a great start on my business. I'm starting out with a 22" Toro Recycler, trimmer. Need to buy a blower and edger. I've got some great logos from your site and seeing what works well. Have talked with my tax man about all that fun uncle sam stuff too.

I do have a few questions:

1. Do I pay the different percent sales tax in each city I operated or just the county my office is out of?

2. If operating out of my house do you suggest a PO Box at post office instead of my home address for customers to send there money.

It is possible you might have to but you might just have to pay a state sales tax. I don't know the answer to this. You will need to talk to a local book keeper, accountant or local tax accessors office.

I think that would be better unless you want customers showing up to talk with you whenever they feel like it.
