The exact amount should be used when calculating payments for land development review(s) and permit fees when submitted as part of the application process. If there is a miscalculation of fees by less than 20 percent and the plan meets quality control screening standards, the Department of Development Services will accept the plans and adjust the amount by the final submission (signature submission).
Any fees calculated on an area basis must be figured to a minimum of two decimal places. For example, if the parcel area is 8.49956 ac, do not use 8.4 ac or 8.5 ac, 8.50 ac should be used to calculate the fees.
Payment can be made using cash, checks, or credit/debit cards for all land development review(s) and permit fees. However, credit card payments for bonds and/or escrows (including lot escrows) will not be accepted (cash or separate check only). Checks should be made payable to ‘Director of Finance, Prince William County'. Only the following credit/debit cards will be accepted for land development fees: Master Card, Visa, and Discover. All credit/debit card transactions must be processed in person. Currently, we do not accept credit/debit card payments over the phone or online.
