My question is for the invoices. Should I itemize and list each of the materials items?
I know I will have a couple categories of paint.
10 gallons eggshell --
5 gallons semigloss
etc
but I am also going to throw in a roller, the tape, a few other things.
do I list each thing separately? Do people include copies of receipts on an invoice?

And also , for instance, like my caulk. I think I used 4 or 5 tubes out of a case of 10.
just itemize half a case of caulk?

What else is included on an invoice? I am working out how to go legit , and I will have to figure out sales tax and all for this state. I guess with a good bid I would calculate in taxes. but for now one property manager keeps giving me 1099's and I keep thinking , "wait a minute, my time and materials didn't take into account my taxes." I already charged him too little for time$ and that makes it difficult to raise it. Thats just a mistake that i took as a lesson learned.
Invoices are not the same as proposals (estimates)

I use PEP estimating software and they offer 3 different levels of proposals.

One level they have EVERYTHING itemized. Personally, I don't want to show my clients that much information. I use their MEDIUM proposal where only the areas have a price total.

The LOW has just the Grand Total. I call that the super stealth mode...lol

After the job is finished you send an invoice for the balance owing. PEP has that built in too.
