     All contractors working in the City of Jackson are required to have a valid City of Jackson Contractor License.  Contractor licenses are obtained from the Building and Planning Department.  Contractors working as sub-contractors for other contractors or for other persons are required to have their own licenses.

    All contractors must provide proof of workers' compensation insurance if required by law to carry this insurance.  Missouri law requires construction contractors with one or more employees to carry workers' compensation insurance.  Contractors not required by law to carry this insurance can complete a waiver on the application form which includes their notarized signature.  Notary Public services are available for this purpose in the Building and Planning Department.

      There is currently no testing requirement for licensing of contractors in the City of Jackson.
