Credit Card, E-Check Payments and Convenience Fees
All credit card and debit card payments are subject to a 2.5% convenience fee of the application fee amount due with a $1.00 minimum.
E-Check payments made on our ePermits Center are subject to a $3.00 convenience fee for payment amounts of less than $10,000 and a $15.00 convenience fee for payments over $10,001.
The convenience fee is not a fee payable to Contra Costa County. The convenience fee is required and charged by our third party payment processor, Official Payments Corporation. The convenience fee covers the cost of processing the secure payment transaction in our office and on our ePermits Center website. The convenience fee will appear as a separate charge for Official Payments Corporation from the application fees due to Contra Costa County on your credit card statement.
