If it is in the city limits, you are supposed to have a business license, and they may also do inspections. Taxes on a rental property are double the owner occupant rate also, so if you are looking at tax records and it is a class 2, once a rental it will change to Class 3 in the following tax year. If you would like any further help, call or email. Jeanne
