Did you know that Illinois used to have the some of the highest LLC fees in the nation? Thanks to the SBAC’s dedication to fighting for small businesses, in 2017, this fee was lowered from $500 to $150, allowing more entrepreneurs to launch new businesses and grow the Illinois economy.
Additionally, until July 2021, Chicago small businesses could not get approval for public way use permits for up to 5 months. The SBAC played a huge role in amending this ordinance – fighting for 7 years - to eliminate the need for City Council approval on these permits, allowing small businesses more opportunity to draw in customers and grow their business.
