Q:  I'm supposed to report on my "gross income" - what does that mean?

A:  The B&O tax is based on gross, rather than net income. The term "gross income" refers to the total amount of income earned by the business for products sold or services rendered. Retail sales tax you charge should not be included in the gross income figure you report. There are no deductions allowed for costs of doing business, materials used, labor or delivery expenses, or taxes.
