Re: Need Advice Please


Have him write the check out to himself as he did the work, then have him give you the cash from the business lol. If he wants to write it off the business let him also count it as income. Doesn't sound like a friend if he is wanting a "hook up" and still claim it, but if he wants to claim it I would let the job go until I had my license.

Fuggettaboutit!
Git yer damn license and act like a pro or just work bootleg like so many other mopes in this state and stop worrying about it.
$500 and over in CA, you need the ticket.
But as I have stated in previous replies, it doesn't matter out here anyway because it is unenforced except for the occasional sting to make it on the news like they are actually enforcing something in the contracting world.

You're lucky, the People's Republik of Kalifornia does not enforce the laws as written regarding being licensed in the construction business.
No, in the state of California, you do not need a contractor's license, local municipality business license, driver's license or any documentation that you are in the country legally to begin with, or that you have been granted the status of working in the United States legally.

All you need is some sheitbox vehicle with expired registration, a few tools, and some dumb-ass tagging along with you to help. He doesn't need to be in the country legally either. You can take any size job, and ask for and accept any size deposit with total impunity.
Also, you can underbid licensed Americans and take all the work you want, not pull a permit, and did I mention you don't have to pay income taxes either? You don't, and by the way, you can use your local hospital's emergency room for your medical needs like it was an HMO and you don't ever have to pay a dime for health care.
AND, since you don't have an income anyone can prove, you can also apply for and get welfare benefits to help augment your earnings, even if they are higher than average from your bootleg construction jobs.
And if anybody bitches about what you are doing, they will be labeled racist politically incorrect bigots. So what are you waiting for?
WHAT A COUNTRY!

Who really needs contractors state license anymore? When I go out to my truck after leaving the BIG BOX stores there must be at least 5 business cards without a cslb number anyway.

YES!! Full on advertising flyers too, no license printed on them either.

You might as well take the wall certificate they give you when you get your license in CA and give it to some unlicensed mexican dude to wipe his ass with.
