How much will my building permit cost?

Permit fees are collected at the time of submittal, and include a plan check fee and a small state surcharge. Fees are based on the estimated value of work, which is provided by the applicant or the contractor, or is calculated using the square footage of the project. The plan check fee is 75% of the building permit fee calculation. Some permit types include a base charge as well. In addition, impact fees to schools, parks, and traffic may apply. 

For an estimate of permit fees, use the Fee Estimator tool on the SSPP or call the Permit Center at 360-282-3156.
