New California law exempts home inspectors, making it easier for them to work as subcontractors

Governor just signed it.

The question(s) is… “WHY”? What’s the “Rub”??

Expected answer: “TAX Revenue”!!

It’s not really a new law, as much as it clarifies a previous law that went too far.

Notice, home inspectors are only except in a business to business transactions:

Hiring an employee and calling them an independent contractor just because you don’t want to deal with W2 taxes would still be illegal.

Hiring another inspector who has his/her own business because you need help for a day is now legal.
