A PayPal Transaction Recovery Fee is added to the amount to recover what PayPal charges us for the transaction. (This amount is "X"+3.49% + $0.49).
A $50 Convenience Fee ("CF") is included in the fee amounts that include the state project filing fee if you want us to register the project and pay the state project filing fee for you.
Very Important: If the inspection fee is not paid at the time of the plan review fee then you should notify your client or the property owner that the fee was not paid. When the inspection fee is not paid, what typically happens is the project is constructed and a C.O. is issued by the local building department, then some months later a Notice of Inspection Overdue (NOID) is issued by the state to the property owner with threats of administrative sanctions and penalties/fines if not resolved. The property owner forwards the NOID to their tenant and the tenant discards or discredits the notice since they believe the C.O. covered all inspections. Big mistake. The architectural barriers inspection is a state requirement.
Some credit cardholders, such as those working for government agencies, do have restrictions, including those that prevent transactions using PayPal, so check with the cardholder first (i.e. purchasing agent).
Refund Policy: Effective October 11, 2019, if you pay for fees utilizing PayPal and request a refund, the refunded amount will not include the fees PayPal charges us to process the initial transaction.
