Building Permit Fee Estimator

This page is a guide to estimate fees for your project.  Please be aware that your calculations may not include all relevant fees for your specific project.  The Building Department will calculate fees during the permit's review.  Applicants pay fees at the time of building permit issuance.  The Building Department will contact you after plan review is complete and give you the total amount due for fees.

Calculating the Building Permit Fee, Plan Review Fee, and Use Tax

First, you need to know the valuation of a project, which is determined by this ICC Building Data Worksheet.
Next, click on this Building Permit Fee Worksheet to calculate the fee based on the valuation.  

To calculate the amount of use tax owed on a project, first determine the valuation of the project. Divide the valuation by two, and multiply that amount by 4.25%. 

Plan review fees are calculated at 65% of the building permit fee.
