Beginning 1 May ’17, Williamson County will be processing applications for both the Education Impact Fee and Privilege Tax on-line through the Building Codes Department.  To follow is a brief summary of the procedure by which the Educational Impact Fee and Privilege Tax will be assessed, calculated and collected for residential construction within incorporated Williamson County (Brentwood, Fairview, Franklin, Nolensville, Spring Hill and Thompson’s Station):

Scaled drawings that include a) elevations and b) floor plans of proposed Single-Family or Multi-Family dwellings to be constructed as well as a building permit application form from the jurisdiction in question are required at time of application.  These plans need not be full?-sized plans, but are uploaded in PDF format.  Application information  can be downloaded from the County Website (http://www.williamsoncounty-tn.gov/DocumentCenter/Home/View/531) for anyone seeking to understand the amount and type of data necessary to make a complete application.
