      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

2009 ICEC

Recommended Posts

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.

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'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!!!

    • Grainbelt - the rig is 6 years old.  Is it likely that a solder joint would go bad after that time?  I have another TV on comcast and I hope that if it still works I can eliminate the cable system as the problem.  Is it likely - reasonable - that the TV would crump out after 6 years?  I have no idea what the life expectancy is on these things.
    • Go to the menu screen if you can and you can use a flashlight and shine it into the screen and look close to see if you can see any video. If you can then the backlight LED's quit working and your video bd is good. If you cannot see anything the video bd may not working or possibly it isn't receiving power from the power supply. I had a bad solder joint on the connection between the LED driver and power supply. The whole connector wiggled through the bd from bad soldering. I touched up the solder joints with a soldering pencil and it has not blanked out since.  My TV is a Vizio 55. Most likely you can find parts on hsolist. Good info on how to fix HD TV's on youtube.
    • A free pass to help control the grays?
    • *BANG*!       
    • these get a free pass  
    • The viewpoints would be a lot "different" but that doesn't necessarily mean it would be "better."  The military must think a volunteer force is better than mandatory enlistment, or it would probably go back to its old way of doing things.
    • No Dave, I have never worn a flag bikini or stuck one in my hot dog!  Stuck my hot dog in a bikini once but that's another story,  nice try!
    • First time we have had this one in the yard if that's what it is. Not marked off in my book. 
    • Probably a bad board that was discontinued the month you bought the TV and no replacements are available because a million other people had the same problem.  I have had 2 Samsung plasma screen televisions go out in similar matter.  Fortunately i had a replacement warranty from Best Buy that replaced the first one and when the second one went out within a year they refunded my money and i went LG.  I believe it was a power supply board that was the issue with mine.  MY brother in law had the same TV and the video board went out in his but luckily i was able to swap the video board out of my defective television and his is still working.  Keep in mind this is when a 42"-50" television was $2,000 so a guy can understand the frustration when you only got 16 months out of it.
    • If you find a deal use whatever you saved to buy/make an extended run tank.  Things are worth their weight in gold.  Nothing better than ripping the starter cord once and never having to worry about it the rest of the weekend.  Delchcchi made a good point as well about having a place locally who is able to do warranty work.  Honda's notoriously are well built and I've never had a problem with mine but you never know.
