    This is another example of government thinking outside the box when it comes to ways to take away money from the citizen to feed the growing monster. Shame on you Cedar Hills officials.

    Yes, David, it is. It's actually a protection for other property owners and even for the tenants of the rented homes. It goes a long way toward weeding out the slumlords from among responsible landlords.

    This is a pretty broad assumption that all 2nd homes are rental property and a business. What about cabins and summer homes or shared condominium properties? None of these properties can not be rented or licensed as a business so I think this law has gone too far to collect more taxes as a business. A home used as business use home does not require a business license, only the business name is licensed. Many 2nd homes are considered Grandparents homes where immediate relatives reside at the expense of family assistance. Homes that do not rent for profit are not business and do not require a business license.

    I think Cedar Hills just set themselves up for some major law suits for the purpose of taxation and illegal zoning violations of their own city laws. The city has to prove a profit to call it a business.

    Glad I don't live in Cedar Hills. First their golf course debacle and now this. More government intrusion is never good.

    Is requiring a business license for rental property standard operating procedures for cities?
