I just found out that in my state I need to charge sales tax on embroidery work - what a bummer.
" Section 1. Tax applies to charges for producing, fabricating, processing, printing, or imprinting tangible personal property for consumers who furnish either directly or indirectly, the materials used.

I've found an easy way to keep track of sales tax is to transfer it from my business checking to a separate ING account (you can make subaccounts there). Then I know exactly how much I have to send to Dear Mr. Governor every quarter - I just don't add the (tiny) interest it earns into my Quicken account for business until after the quarter (and then I usually transfer it over to a different ING subaccount right away).

Did that make any sense? Anyway - it works for me. It's a good paper trail, too. :)
