    Go to the NJ division of consumer affairs site look at home improvement contractor License. You need it unless you only cut grass.

    Don't forget about looking into the individual town you are working in. I'm told some towns/counties you now have certain licensing.

    I just heard about this...next thing you know we'll need 8 more licenses just to help out with the deficit.

    not every town requires a permit to work in. If u have the nj state license the towns waive their fees but u still have to fill out their paperwork. I also heard they could get in trouble trying to charge u for a town permit when u have the state license.
