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 review 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 review fee based on valuation with a minimum charge of $50.

An expedited plan review fee is $400, and is charged in addition to the standard plan review fee of $500.

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

All permit, development and impact fee payments over $300 are assessed a 3% credit card processing fee.
