Illinois Business Licenses

The state of Illinois does not require a basic business license; however most businesses are required to register with the Illinois Department of Revenue. Any business with employees in the state will need to register for a withholding tax account and an unemployment insurance account. The Department of Financial and Professional Regulation is the main licensing authority in the state and regulates many different professions. Additional county and local business licenses may also be required.
