    I am starting snow removal this year. I already have a lawn business that I have to charge service tax on, but in my book for the state of Ohio, I dont see anything about taxing snow removal. Just wondering if someone can help me on this. Thanks

    If you will earn over $5000. in snow removal then yes you must collect sales tax. I didn't my first couple years so I didn't collect the tax......But now I do on all services

    Snow &ice are both services, services are taxable.]

    Ie. Hardscaps is not. Softscape is, Lawn Care is, Fence is not,
    Call the Dept of tax or your CPA.
