In ePermitting, when you add fees to a permit the fee schedule always defaults to the schedule for the type of permit you are working on and the most recently installed fees. The valuation calculator also defaults to the most recent version of the adopted ICC valuation table. Sometimes, however, you need to assess fees from an older fee schedule or valuation table (e.g., when a permit was opened before the adoption of the new schedule/valuation table and you need to honor the old rates even though there’s a new rate in effect). Please note that valuation must be based on ICC building valuation data, current as of April 1 of each year (OAR 918-050-0100 (1)(c) and (2)(c)).
To do this you should NOT use a ledger adjustment to get the “correct fees,” you should, instead, use the older fee schedule or valuation table to calculate or assess the fees. On a One & Two Family Dwelling permit, ePermitting defaults to the Structural Residential fee schedule and the most recently adopted schedule:
If you need to toggle back to an older version of the fee schedule, just pick it from the Version drop down and add the fees at that rate:
If you need an older version of the ICC tables you change to the desired schedule on the valuation calculator and use that value to recalculate the fees:
Using the fee schedules or the valuation tables is preferable to using a ledger adjustment because it better reflects what you are actually charging the customer and why.
