It should be listed on your invoice.  If you have any questions, please contact 3-1-1 or 847-448-4311.

I have family members who reside in my building.  Why do I have to register?

Only in the situation when the occupants are on the deed is the unit considered owner occupied.  All other residents are considered tenants.

When I purchased my home five/ten/fifteen years ago, it was sold as a single family home.  Why am I receiving this invoice?

Although the previous owner may have utilized the space as a single family home, a permitted deconversion was never completed.  Please contact 3-1-1 or 847-448-4311 and ask for a customer service representative.
