I am in FL and am wondering if you know if I can work for myself and as an independent contractor and accept work under other appraisal companies. I have an LLC and my own insurance and everything else. I’m just trying to get enough work to make enough money. AMC work after a 50/50 split kills me but I’m also new so I know it takes time.
I’m on hold with the state and I have looked all over the site. I can’t find any clear answers and this lady is trying to help but I’ve been onhold for 28 minutes

Also no I’m not a trainee that avatar things is wrong.

I don't see why you can't work as an IC. Most appraiser's I know do just that.

50/50 split from an AMC? You need better customers. I charge what I charge and they can make whatever they can on the top. But I've been cultivating AMCs for at least 15 years.

Sure....as long as the company you are working for, as a W-2 employee, does not prohibit it. More often than not if you are a W-2 employee for an appraisal firm, they are not going to work on the side...but some will allow it.
