To Pay By Personal Check or Company Check:
Use the dropdown menus to determine the fees you want to pay. Use the fee on the left side if paying by check; The fee on the right side is the amount charged to use a credit card (more below). Be sure to include the $175 state filing fee and $50 convenience fee if you want us to register your project. If you need to print the Fee Schedule see the back of the Architectural Barriers Project Registration Form. Checks made payable to 'Texas Access' may be mailed to our main intake office. Be sure to write the Project Name or TABS Number on the check! See the Contact Us page for the mailing address.
A Note about Purchase Orders: We will not accept purchase orders in lieu of receiving payment by check, money order, or credit card PRIOR to the performance of any service. This is not negotiable. The submittal will not be considered complete until payment has been received.
To Pay With Any Major Credit Card Using PayPal:
You are not required to have a PayPal account to use a credit card. Simply select the desired fees based on the construction cost and then Enter the Project Name or TABS Number in the field below the fee amount. Click on the Add to Cart button and then make the payment.
A PayPal Transaction Recovery Fee is added to the amount to recover what PayPal charges us for the transaction. (This amount is "X"+2.9%+.30).
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).
Since the rollout of a credit card payment option approximately 90% of our customers elect to use a credit card to pay the fees.
A $50 Convenience Fee ("CF") is included in the fee amounts that include the state filing fee if you want us to register the project and pay the state filing fee for you.
Before paying a fee amount that includes the $175 state filing fee, make sure that the project has not already been registered with the state. If the project has already been registered, then the $175 state filing fee has been paid. In that case, you do not want to select the fee amount that includes the state filing fee. To determine if a project has already been registered, click here.
Important: A project with a construction cost that is less than $50,000 is not required to be registered with the TDLR or receive a plan review or inspection (compliance is required regardless of the cost). If a building permit department is insisting on a "TDLR number" and the construction cost is less than $50,000, please print out the FAQ's published by TDLR, specifically General FAQ Number 5 "Do I have to submit plans for an accessibility plan review?", and provide that to the permitting authority.
For projects having a construction cost that is greater than $50M please call us to discuss.
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. PayPal has served notice that on the effective date if a transaction is refunded to the customer they will not refund the transaction fee unless the refund is a result of a duplicate transaction, or a void or disputed transaction. The transaction fee PayPal charges is 2.9% + .30.
Special Fees not in the Fee Schedule:
TDLR Late Project Filing Fee (uncommon)
$300.00. This is a fee that is required by the state in lieu of the $175 State Project Filing Fee when a project is registered AFTER construction has been completed. In this case, you will need to register the project. We do not register late projects.
Special Interim Inspection Fee
$250.00. Includes an informal, walking inspection with observations and comments regarding the construction in progress. This does NOT include a written report. Owner's rep or site rep MUST be present to take notes, etc. If interested give us a call, but we must be hired to perform the "official" post-construction inspection before performing an interim inspection.
Construction Not Completed - Inspection Cancelled
$200.00. If the inspection is called for and the project is not 100% completed at the time of arrival on site. If the inspection is canceled we will require that a penalty fee be paid PRIOR to rescheduling the inspection. Please do not attempt to pre-schedule an inspection before construction is completed. We have a very tight schedule and cannot be jerked around with changing completion dates.
When fees are paid we immediately receive notice from PayPal and then apply the payment to the project.
