Copy of an email I have sent to Thumbtack:
As I mentioned to you in the past and to several others at Thumbtack, the case of the bartender that is also listed as a Wedding Officiant, I do not have the name, but several officiants has mentioned it in our meetings. It does got all of us very upset!!! I repeat it agin, NO STATE IN THE USA, offers a state license for Wedding Officiants. There is no such thing, but If you look under Wedding Officiants in your files, you will see that there are several showing a license. You don't even show that category under the list of professions for Wedding Officiants or Ministers!!! So we are going in circles. If you read my notes below, you can see we are repeating the same, the same and the same. I believe Thumbtack is not going to do anything about it. It will continue misleading people who are booking for a Wedding Officiants, and showing they have a license for it, jeopardizing others who can’t show one when they look for who is sending a quote, because the is no such Wedding officiants license, only an ID from the Church we are associated with as Ministers. Not even a Priest received a state license, how would you think we are going to get one?
We live in Ohio. Ohio doesn’t issue ID numbers for Wedding Officiant License. The licenses can be easily verified by going to sos.ohio.gov, scrolling down to the Minister’s License search, and typing in our last name. I also sent a copy of my License, but for some reason it was rejected!?! What should we do?!?
@bigdogserv Hi J, I'm going to take a look into this and see what's going on. I want you to be able to quote on those jobs! Once I get more info about this I'll send you a direct message, keep an eye out for that.
Hi, @cwoodstair thanks for your patience with this. In order for you to quote on requests, your license needs to meet California's laws and requirements. To send Stair Installation Model Repair quotes on Thumbtack, you will need C61 / D41 - Limited Specialty or C23 - Ornamental Metal Work license. I hope this helps clear things up. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thanks for that feedback @cwoodstair, I've sent that on to the right team. At this time you will need to retain one of those licenses I listed above in order to continue quoting on Thumbtack.
