Start singing the blues. All construction work in New York is regulated at the local level. With 62 counties and a gazillion point two municipalities, boroughs, cities, townships and other cute bedroom community monikers, it can be taxing to identify the licensing requirements when you tackle a bid that was due yesterday.
To find out if a contractor is licensed in New York, you will need to contact the licensing board in that community.
Corporations doing business in New York must register with the New York Secretary of State to do business in the state. For information, click on Secretary of State.
