Contractors must register. A contractor is any person who engages in the business of construction and includes subcontractors, general contractors, and any other person arranging for the performance of work on real property.

Out-of-state Contractors will need to provide in-state contact information for Registered Agent – a person or entity designed to receive important tax or other legal documents on behalf of the company. The Registered Agent must be located and available at a legal address within the specified jurisdiction at all time.
