I am an outlaw repair tech, totally off the grid as far as taxes are distraught.
I don’t take debit cards or checks, money or barter, only yes, I will take barter, if you have something that I want.
I did some A/C repairs on a guy’s truck once for 6 chickens, which are still giving me eggs to this day. We are so deep out in the country I doubt anyone in the IRS will ever notice, I still have to be careful. The government doesn’t like people running their own corporation and making money, so I have to make sure our HVAC repair stays on the hush-hush. In this area of the country, I have a lot of buyers, and all the people agree that we should keep the government out of our affairs. If you don’t feel much about farms, you may not feel that most new farms have heating systems in and systems in their barns. If you are holding critters inside a contained area, it’s substantial to have official ventilation so those potential dangerous gasses don’t accumulate/ I have never met a farmer that wanted air conditioning for her livestock, but almost all of them require some kind of rudimentary heating plan to keep the critters alive through the serious winters. On top of the farm work, I also do a lot of home repairs on heating and cooling systems. We have a lot of truly old houses in this area, with heating systems and water boilers that are just as old, and need official care to keep them strong.
