City of Chicago Offers Small Business Assistance

The Small Business Solution Station offers free one-on-one business counseling for entrepreneurs. This is where you can talk to an expert about planning, legal issues, small business loans, tax matters or just get expert advice.

Counseling is offered at City Hall, 121 N. LaSalle St. in Room 800. The Solution Station is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and the last Friday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Counseling is provided by our partner organizations, SCORE, The Law Project, the Women's Development Center and ACCION Chicago.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is at the Small Business Solution Station from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the last Friday of every month. They have a bilingual (Spanish/English) staff on hand for free one-on-one consultation for small business owners on tax-related matters.
