The City of San Jose has made its best effort to simplify and refine this calculator to provide an estimate of your permit fees, inspection fees, and construction taxes. Due to the complex nature of permits and scope of work, the results are an estimate using the information you provide. The results approximate the fees and taxes to be charged for the scope of work proposed.*Please note that this calculator does not include fees associated with Public Works review (example sewer connections and utility permits). Public Works fees generally apply to new construction projects. If you would like to know if your project is subject to Public Works review please refer to their website. Information on Public Works fees and costs can be found in the Public Works fee schedule.
