Answer: heres the answer to your question..the first thing you need to do is to get an occupational license, that costs fifty bucks, and prior to that file for a ficticious name . When you file for the license you will be asked the primary business you are in and you put in Handyman. There are specific limitations to Handyman tasks, basically anything that requires a permit is not eligible for Handyman work. Some cities in Florida do have a Handyman's license but it differs from city to city, and for that you have to call the city offices and find out what is required in order to get that license, basically its a written and signed statement that says you have read the legal statutes and that also lists the type of work you cannot do...
