    Just wondering if anyone is noticing a change in trend for invoicing as either a direct contractor to the owner or billing to a general contractor.  I have only worked for my current employer for about a year but they have always done lump sum bids and invoicing; in other words we don't separate line items by materials and labor or separate sales tax.  In the last few months however I have been getting a lot of push back from customers wanting invoices (even on per unit billings) that separate materials and labor and show sales tax.  Does anyone have any input on the subject?  Is this really the industry standard or have I just experienced some rare situations recently?  I appreciate any input or advice you may have.
