Building Permit Fees

Cost Determination


The permit fees are based on the cost (valuation) of the construction. American Fork City utilizes a table (PDF) to figure these fees based on the square footage and subsequent valuation of the project.

A plan check fee of $500 is charged for all new residential plan submissions. This fee is payable upon submission of construction plans to the Building Department for review. All other permits are assessed a plan check fee based on valuation with a minimum charge of $50.

A state fee of 1% of the building permit fee is charged and sent to the state.
