2009 ICEC

15 posts in this topic

So how many of my fellow contractors out there understand the new Independent contractor exemption certificate (ICEC)?

I just learned about it and I am more confused than ever.

I am the sole prop of an LLC. Do I need to get one of these to do work for other contractors? AND If I have other people work for me do they need to get one?

Just seems like more hoops to jump through. Very frusterating. I think it is $150 every two years. And people wonder why a small roof or siding job cost almost 10k. Insurance, fees and taxes are really starting to *!SS me off!!

LOL, I hear you, but I think it's good.

From what I understand, they are trying to get rid of the fly by nighters, pop up companies, and illegals.

I have not seen the paperwork yet, but I am licensed so it won't be necessary.

This is just for subs, correct? I haven't looked into the paperwork yet. The DOLI site is under construction, so nothing to be seen there. I think it takes effect Jan. 1st.

I went to my continue ed. and the state sent out the info. about it. The one that have to have it is a sole prop. if your a partnership, LLC, or a corp. you don't need it! Please check the ICEC law out.

I was told at my cont. ed. that if your a partnership, llc or corp. and doing sub. work you don't need it as long you still run your bis. separate from the one your subing to and keep your paper work show that your running your biz.

I other thing is the state will deduct $100 off your ICEC if you turn it in before jan 1 with your renewal for your lin. is what I heard at my cont. ed. again please check in to it.

I'm restructuring my company right now!

Currenty I'm a liscense building contractor in Mn. I called down to the state and they said anyone doing any sub work has to have this, even if you are already liscensed, plumber, electrician, etc. If you sub out work you must keep copies of these for all your subs for five years. Just like another tax for the liscense guys, but hopefully will get rid of the bad apples like stated earlier.

If you bill the homeowner directly, then you don't need it, otherwise in the state of Mn you need it no matter what kind of work you do. Sheetrockers,Tapers,Heating,security,etc.

If you bill the homeowner directly you are not a sub. Also, you must be licensed.

You can sub to another as long as you keep your biz. separate like paper work and ect. and still sub as long you still do work elese were at lease one in a year.

You also need to be a LLC, Partnership, or Corp. and you don't need to be ICEC.

Also you have make shur you don't fall under the 7 rule guide that they have out. I have also talk to the state and they said it applies to LLC, Partnership, and Corp.,but it does not follow there part were it say LLC, Partnership, and Corp. are exempt from the ICEC. They said as long as you don't fall under the 7 rule you don't need to have the ICEC.

There whole thing is to clamp down on the sole porp. who do work for one or sub to one for a long time. So the one hiring them to do the work has to carry the proper ins. on them and make it harder for the fly-by-nighter.

I also think this is to clamp down on the paper contractors who have been getting by in the past. There is alot of this in the exteriors business. A salesman/business owner/contractor bids jobs day in and out. Then they hire the actual work to another sub company.

Being a Contractor you have a few choices. 1. hire subs 2. hire employees 3. do the work yourself

There has been a loop hole for years where they could sub work out cheap to illegitimate companies. This way they don't have to have comp on them, and a cheap insurance is all that is needed. I think they are closing this loop hole, and collecting more taxes all in one shot.

I agree roofer and to the state employee are start to lose there jod and this way it crates more money for them to keep there jobs too.

I heard that this was coming for a long time!

I'm thinking this is again nothing more than a way for the state to get more money out of us. If we do sub work for someone we need the icec, that costs us $$$. if we hire someone without icec, we're subject to a fine. If I get hired by a HO, and dont have an icec, who's going to care? what benifit is this to us?

If your lin. you can still do sud work without the ICEC as long as you are separate biz. then the one you sub too and are exempt from ICEC. Its in the pamphlet read it!!!

The state when I called was saying something a liitle diff.,but the pamphlet has all the rules. Read them!!!

    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake

    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full.
