SPONSOR AND EXHIBITOR INFORMATION & REGISTRATION


Construction Career Days EXHIBITOR Opportunities
We are seeking 35 indoor exhibitors and participation is free. The best way to engage students is through hands-on-activities and we strongly encourage you to include interactivity at your booth. We have found that exhibitors with hands-on activities have the most traffic and the best chance of getting their message across. The planning committee is available to help you design an activity, if needed. We have space for a few additional outdoor exhibitors as well. The main focus of all exhibitors will be to share information with high school students about career pathways within their organizations in a fun and informative way.

Habitat Forsyth Partnership

John 3:16 Builder Blitz

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. – John 3:16

Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County is honored to receive a gift designated for a John 3:16 Build. This contribution is the foundation of our Spring John 3:16 Blitz build which will kick off in the Bowen Park community April 3-8, 2017. The John 3:16 Build purpose is to bring together individuals and churches to raise funds and build Habitat homes around the message of John 3:16. We invite congregations and organizations to join us in this historical build by providing volunteers and a financial contribution of any level. By partnering with the Home Builders Association of Winston-Salem our goal is to have one home completed and ready for dedication and have three houses completely “dried in” at week’s end.

PWB Leadership Report

January 2017 Leadership Report
Miranda Kempton, 2017 President of Professional Women in Building (HBAWS)

 
Our Professional Women in Building Group had our January meeting at Uncorked Masterpiece in Reynolda Village. It was time once again for our annual “painting party”. Everyone had a great time creating their own artwork and socializing. We did touch on a couple of main topics.
The first topic we discussed consisted of everyone volunteering more for the 2017 year. This is a very important topic because it started our PWB year with teamwork and getting ready to tackle all our tasks as a TEAM 
Our second topic consisted of the Triad Home & Garden Show. I spoke about everyone bringing in gardening supplies for our February meeting. The February meeting, we will discuss more about the show and iron out all our details for volunteers, booth setup and etc.
Next month, we will be back at the HBAWS office for our February meeting.

SALES TAX ON REPAIR, MAINTENANCE AND INSTALLATION IN RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION

SPECIFIC EXAMPLES: Among the specific examples of a “capital improvement” is “performance of work that requires the issuance of a permit under the State Building Code” (a residential project that costs $15,000 or more). Other examples include painting, wallpapering and landscape services. Specifically excluded from taxation are services performed to resolve an issue that was part of a real property contract within twelve months of the new structure being occupied for the first time (warranty callbacks). Home inspections, debris removal, pest control and fees for inspections required by law are also specifically exempt. Those subcontractors who operate as a “retailer-contractor” (i.e., provide subcontractor services to builders and others) are also exempt when the entity acts as a real property contractor.

TAX ON RMI LABOR DUE WHEN NOT A CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT: A single repair, maintenance or installation service does not qualify as a capital improvement. The replacement of a fixture in or on a building or structure is not a capital improvement unless the replacement is a part of remodeling. Some remodeling projects may include activities which qualify as a capital improvement (no tax on labor) and activities that constitute a repair (tax on labor). However, no tax will be due on labor in these “mixed transactions” if the price of the repair, maintenance or installation (RMI) service does not exceed ten percent (10%) of the contract price. If it exceeds 10% of the contract price, then sales and use tax applies only to the RMI labor portion of the contract.

GENERAL CONTRACTOR MUST PROVIDE AFFIDAVIT TO SUBCONTRACTOR (Form E-589CI): The NC Department of Revenue (DOR) has opined that this affidavit generally must be provided to substantiate that the work is a capital improvement. This Form E-589CI was just made available on the DOR website on 12/09/16 along with the following explanation: The N.C. Department of Revenue has published the Form E-589CI, Affidavit of Capital Improvement, and a corresponding notice. The Form E-589CI is generally required to substantiate that a contract, or a portion of work to be performed to fulfill a contract, is to be taxed for sales and use tax purposes as a real property contract with respect to a capital improvement to real property. Failure of a person to issue Form E-589CI, other than for the permitted exceptions discussed within this Important Notice, to substantiate that a transaction is for a real property contract with respect to a capital improvement subjects the transaction to tax as a retail sale of repair, maintenance, and installation services for real property in accordance with N.C. Gen. Stat. § 105-164.4(a)(16). The instructions (printed on the reverse of the form) summarize the following exceptions to DOR’s requirement to issue Form E-589CI: The following are exceptions for transactions where Form E-589CI is not required to be issued to substantiate that the transaction is taxed, as applicable, for sales and use tax purposes as a real property contract with respect to a capital improvement to real property. • Painting or wallpapering real property, or parts thereof. • Landscaping service. Form E-589CI is not required to be issued by the specific person for a transaction noted below. The exceptions do not apply to transactions between a general contractor hired to oversee the entire contract and one of its subcontractors (See “Blanket Use” of Form E-589CI (Section II) for possible exceptions.). The following exceptions do not apply to remodeling. • A real property owner or other person hires a general contractor to oversee the entire contract and the contract is for “new construction” as defined in N.C. Gen. Stat. § 105- 164.4H(e)(2). • A real property owner or other person hires a general contractor to oversee the entire contract and the contract is to rebuild or construct again a prior existing permanent building, structure, or fixture on land (reconstruction as defined in N.C. Gen. Stat. § 105- 164.4H(e)(3)). • A general contractor that purchases all tangible personal property and digital property to fulfill the real property contract and provides the employee labor to fulfill the real property contract. With respect to the form itself, the Section 1 is for “single use” (where there is no recurring business relationship between the contractor and the subcontractor) and Section II is for ‘blanket use” (where there is a recurring business relationship). Experience would suggest that most residential general contractors (whether new construction or remodeling) will be able to utilize the “blanket” version as builders typically utilize the same subcontractors on a recurring basis. [NCHBA questioned DOR why this affidavit needed to be furnished with respect to new construction as it is, by definition, a capital improvement. This issue will likely be further addressed in the upcoming session.]

DOR DIRECTIVES: On 11/15/16, the NC Department of Revenue issued two directives relative to these changes. The first, SD-16-3, addresses the application of sales and use taxes to a real property contract with respect to a capital improvement for real property. The second, SD-16-4, addresses a number of issues relative to the application of sales and use tax concerning repair, maintenance and installation (RMI). Please consult these directives for more discussion and examples.
