Contractor Registration #:
Business Name:
Check all that apply to your current situation:
I am a self-employed contractor.
I do not pay more than $2,000.00 per year to employ other people in the business (do not include
yourself) in the business of construction.
I never perform construction work with or for other contractors working in the “same phase of
construction.” The “same phase of construction” is defined as the same type of work, such as
masonry, stonework, electrical work or concrete work, etc.
If applicable, I have enclosed a list of all current employees and a list of all employees who have
worked for me in the past 12 months and the amount paid to each employee.
If all of the statements are true, you may qualify for an exemption from the $50.00 yearly contractor registration
fee. If your business changes so that you no longer meet the fee exemption requirements, you must
immediately forward the fee to the Iowa Division of Labor. Attach an additional sheet for employee data, if
necessary. A new fee exemption form is required yearly along with renewing your contractor registration.
Please have a notary public ready to witness when signing this fee exemption form. Attach this form to your
application and forward to the Division of Labor.
