Development Services Fees


Service Fee for Credit Card Payments (AB+C Portal): As of November 14, 2022, customers choosing to pay via credit card will be charged a service fee of 2.35% ($2.00 minimum). We encourage use of our fee-free options:

  • Pay online with a checking account (online bank draft/eCheck/ACH)
  • Pay in-person with a credit card for payments less than $10,000 (cannot accept payments over $10,000 in person via a credit card)
  • Pay in-person via cash or check

The Fee Schedule for FY 2022-23, which went into effect Oct. 1, 2022, follows a thorough review and reduction of many development-related fees charged by the Development Services Department. It also includes the addition of fees for Alarm Administration services. Please visit the Austin Center for Events website to view fees related to special events and outdoor music venues.
