What is a Wyoming contractor license bond?
“Wyoming contractor license bond” is a generic term for various contractor bonds required for licensing by cities and counties across the state. Wyoming Statutes 39-16-306 also requires non-resident contractors file a specific contractor sales and use tax bond before working in the state. The exact name of your Wyoming surety bond form and its terms will vary depending on which regulatory authority requires it.
Why are contractor bonds required in Wyoming?
Contractor license bonds require contractors to follow all relevant local compliance laws for the cities or counties they work in. They generally prohibit fraud and require contractors to complete projects as agreed upon with their clients. The Non-Resident Contractor Sales and Use Tax Bond specifically requires non-resident contractors pay all state-required taxes to the Department of Revenue on time and allows the DOR to collect on unpaid, owed taxes. If a contractor fails to fulfill the professional obligations outlined on their bond form, the issuing surety company will pay valid claims up to the full bond amount, which the bonded contractor must then reimburse.
Who regulates licensing for contractors?
