Welcome to ePermits


The Department of Permitting Services is rapidly expanding our award winning eServices including ePermits and ePlansePermits allows customers to submit an application, pay fees and receive a permit online.  These functions will vary with each permit type.  ACH/electronic check payments are now available ePermit fee payments.  With this latest enhancement, Permitting Services is open via the internet to transact routine business 24/7. 

TIPS for Using eServices  

Tip #1: Upload your plans with the application.  If plans are not uploaded within in 5 days the application may be voided.  The filing fee is nonrefundable. 

 DPS’ goal is to require the use of ePermits and ePlans for all permit applicaiton types in the future. Currently, all fire alarm, electrical and utility permits require the use of eServices. Beginning January 9th, 2017 all fire protection, fence, commercial new construction and residential solar permits will require the use of eServices. For more information please email dps.eservices@montgomerycountymd.gov or call 240-777-0311.
