In the February/March issue of The Castle Pines Connection “Our Opinion” editorial about business license fees, we reported that Joe the Plumber should “be prepared to pay about $155 ($55 for a business license and $100 for a master plumber license) for making a service call in Castle Pines North…”
Upon further clarification from city officials, it was incorrect to say that a plumber will have to pay for both a business license and a contractor’s license. A contractor only needs a contractor’s license, not both. The plumber’s license fee is $100. They do not need a Business License or a Sales Tax License. However, the $5 application fee still applies, making Joe the Plumber’s total fees $105.
