Surcharge Change — 5/27/2015
There is some good news from the State of Minnesota in regards to the State Surcharge Fee. Effective JULY 1, 2015, the state surcharge applied to “fixed fee” building permits changes from $5.00 for each fixed fee permit to $1.00 for each fixed fee permit. When submitting permits for residential roofing, siding, window replacement, or any electrical, residential or commercial, permits, please change your surcharge amount to $1.00.
