Residential Building Permit Fees
The Following Information Applies to All Residential Permits:
Inspection fees for permits are based upon the International Code Council permit fee formula. This formula is revised and published two times a year by the ICC and reflects the costs of various use groups of construction as well being adjusted to reflect semi-annual construction cost adjustments.
To calculate the approximate residential permit fee use the following formula
(Gross Area*) X $103 = (Cost of Construction) X .006 = Permit Fee
            *(Gross Area) = the square feet of occupied living spaces
Example:        To apply the formula and estimate the permit fee for a new residential single-story house 40’ x 30’ with an unfinished basement the following calculations would apply:
(40’ X 30’)=
            1200 sq ft x $103 = $123,600 x .006 = $742.00 (+$4.00)


Permits with Hourly Fee rates: (2013 hourly fee is $59.00 per hour)
