Major Changes to the Surcharge system.Effective October 1, 2010 the method for assessing building surcharge fees will change from the current one-half cent per square foot to 1.5 percent of permit fees associated with the enforcement of the Florida Building Code. Building departments will be required to collect a 1.5 percent fee on all building permits, i.e., building, plumbing, electrical, mechanical, etc. The minimum fee collected on any permit will be $2.00.
Only On-Line Payments by electronic check will be accepted.
