Other Permit Fees

Estimate the Cost of Your Home Building Permit.

Valuation table is available at the plan review site (International Code Council).

For example: New residential dwelling of 2000 sq ft :$94.06 X 2000 sq ft = $188,120.00 calculated valuation. Using the valuation of $188,120.00, go to the Building Permit Fees Chart (ICC table values change throughout the year, $94.06 is not accurate, only an example)

Building Permit Fees Chart

Total Valuations
Fee
$1,000 and less
No fee, unless inspection is required, in which case a $15 fee for each inspection shall be charged
$1,000 to $50,000
$15 for the first $1,000 plus $5 for each additional thousand or fraction thereof, to and including $50,000
$50,000 to $100,000
$260 for the first $50,000 plus $4 for each additional thousand or fraction thereof, to an including $100,000
$100,000 to $500,000
$460 for the first $100,000 plus $3 for each additional thousand or fraction thereof, to and including $500,000
$500,000 and up
 
To calculate the estimated cost of the permit: Round up to the next thousand: $189,000.00. Add $460.00 (for the first $100,000) to $267.00 (calculated for the remaining $89,000 at $3.00 for each additional thousand) which equals $727.00 for the permit fee. When the $4.00 permit box is added, your total cost for the permit would be $731.00.

*$4.00 will be added to each building permit for the plastic permit box*
