How do contractors deduct payments made to subcontractors on their business tax return?

State law allows contractors to deduct amounts paid to a subcontractor provided the subcontractor has a business tax license or a contractor's license. A contractor must gather the license number of the subcontractor or maintain a copy of the subcontractor's license in its records, as well as the name, address and amount paid to each subcontractor. This is deducted on the business tax return on Schedule A, Line 8. Subcontractors are also required to file their own business tax returns with the Department of Revenue.
