What Types of Coverages Are Included in Contractor Insurance?
Because contractor insurance is adjusted to meet a particular contractor’s needs, there isn’t one set of coverages that’s in every package. There are, however, some common coverages that many contractors get:
Contractor Equipment Coverage, which generally covers the equipment a contractor owns
Equipment Leased or Rented from Others Coverage, which might cover equipment that’s leased or rented for a project
Contractors Liability Insurance, which can help provide protection if a contractor is found responsible for a covered incident or error
Which combination of coverages is right for a particular contractor will depend on their trade, the kind of work they do (e.g. residential or commercial projects), and their location. A painter in Springfield, MA, for instance, will have different coverage needs than a general contractor in Boston, MA.
A Premiums for a Contractors Policy Tax Deductible?
As long as the premiums paid for a contractor policy are used to cover a contractor’s business, they’re generally tax deductible. Because tax laws change each year and are sometimes dependent upon the specific circumstances surrounding a contractor’s situation, though, contractors should talk with a tax professional before claiming a deduction for their premiums. If contractors need proof that they’ve paid premiums to claim their premiums on their taxes, their insurance agent should be able to provide the necessary documentation.
How Can Massachusetts Contractors Get Contractor Insurance?
Contractors who need contractors insurance should talk with an independent insurance agent in Massachusetts. An agent will be able to review a contractor’s situation and recommend a combination of policies, which might include contractors liability insurance, commercial auto insurance, workers compensation insurance, or other types of insurance that can provide solid protection from many potential risks.
