Speaking of customer details.
This is how I have found myself needing to break things down.

I break my customer table down into the following fields.
One common difference I see here in Texas is whether or not a customer
is a residential or commercial customer.
The sales tax laws here are different for each type of customer.
I often have "the same customer" for their own residential work and
also for their business work. That is why I have a separate field for
residential versus commercial since the billing address is often the

Another common situation I run into are jobs where there is a
husband/wife or other type of couple involved.
It is better for me to close the deal
with the couple instead of picking one of the two out of the hat.
No hard feelings and it also gives me both full contacts right away.
