As a landscaper, you are permitted to claim a variety of expenses as tax deductions. Below are some of the most common ones:
- Equipment expenses: You can deduct the cost of machinery, tools, and equipment you use for your landscaping business.
- Vehicle expenses: If you use your vehicle for business, you can deduct your actual expenses or the standard mileage rate, plus parking fees and tolls.
- Office expenses: If you use part of your home as your business office, you may be able to deduct a portion of your housing cost.
- Materials and Supplies: The cost of plants, fertilizers, and other materials used in your landscaping business can be deducted.
- Insurance: Any premiums you pay for business liability insurance are deductible.
Always consult with your accountant to fully understand all the deductions you're eligible for. This ensures that you take advantage of all tax benefits without infringing on any tax laws.
Seasonal income can greatly impact your financial reporting and taxes as a landscaper. During your busy seasons, your income may be significantly higher, which can bump you into a higher tax bracket for that period. However, during your off seasons, your income may decrease, potentially lowering your tax obligations. Furthermore, seasonal income can also influence the timing and amount of your tax payments. You may need to make estimated tax payments throughout the year to avoid underpayment penalties.
It's also necessary to accurately track and report income throughout the year for proper financial reporting. Inaccuracies in your financial statements can lead to misunderstandings about the health of your business and can make tax preparation more challenging. Working with a bookkeeper experienced in handling seasonal income can help ensure your financial reporting is accurate and your taxes are handled correctly depending on the dynamics of your seasonal income.

Nope! All bookkeeping is completed in-house.
Your bookkeeper will be your main point of contact, but at times you might hear from another member of your team. This is usually when your bookkeeper goes on vacation, is sick, or otherwise unavailable.
We handle the bookkeeping for you but sometimes we’ll need your input, especially at year-end. On average, expect to spend 15 minutes each month answering questions for your bookkeeper, or uploading supporting docs.
