In order for a licensed contractor to be able to pull building permits, be listed as a subcontractor on a building permit and to obtain inspections in unincorporated Pasco County, the contractor must first register with the Contractor Licensing Section.
It is the contractor’s responsibility to ensure that all licensing information on file with Pasco County is current.
