I am an outlaw repair tech, totally off the grid as far as taxes are concerned.
- I don’t take credit cards or checks, cash or barter only.
Yes, I will take barter, if you have something that I want. I did some AC repairs on a guy’s truck once for six chickens, which are still giving me eggs to this very day. We are so deep out in the country I doubt anyone in the IRS will ever notice, but I still have to be careful. The government doesn’t like people running their own business and making money, so I have to make sure my HVAC repair service stays on the hush-hush. In this part of the country, I have a lot of clients, and everyone agrees that we should keep the government out of our affairs. If you don’t know much about farms, you may not know that most modern farms have heating systems and ventilation systems in their barns. If you are holding animals inside a contained area, it’s important to have proper ventilation so those potential dangerous gasses don’t accumulate/ I have never met a farmer that wanted air conditioning for his livestock, but almost all of them require some kind of rudimentary heating system to keep the animals alive through the harsh 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 very old houses in this area, with furnaces and water boilers that are just as old, and need proper care to keep them strong.
