• Building Permit Fees


    Building Permit Fees are collected at the time of permit issuance. Fees may be paid for at the Building Safety Front Counter with a major credit card, cash or check. Please make checks payable to "Jefferson County Treasurer". Fees may also be paid for on a secure online account with all major credit cards. 

    Building permit fees are based on valuation that is generally determined by square footage. In certain situations the fees may be based just on contractor valuation.

    Fees for electrical, mechanical and plumbing work done in conjunction with an active building permit issued on or after June 1, 1995, are included in the building permit fee. For stand alone permits, not associated with a building permit, a fee will be charged.

    For building, roofing, electrical, fuel gas, mechanical, plumbing and plan review fees, please see the fee schedule.  Adobe Reader is required for viewing this document
