Fort Mill School District (FMSD) Impact Fee
On July 16, 2018, County Council adopted Ordinance 2818 to collect impact fees on new residential construction, to include mobile homes, within the Fort Mill School District. The established fees are set as follows:
Single- Family: $18,158
Multi- Family: $12,020 per unit
Residential construction located within the limits of the Town of Fort Mill or the City of Tega Cay must still provide payment to York County’s Planning & Development Services Department before a building permit can be issued. Impact Fee Payments Impact Fee payments can be made at the Planning & Development Services Department located at 18 W. Liberty St. York, SC 29745. York County does not accept credit card payments for impact fees. Checks are to be made payable to York County. An Impact Fee Application Form is required to be submitted with your payment. Requests for exemptions, refunds, or waivers can be made by submitting the Impact Fee Application Form as well.
*Please note, residential building permits are valid for six months from the date of approval. If no inspections are scheduled within this six month period, the permit will automatically expire. If the permit was issued prior to any new impact fees being implemented, impact fees will be charged upon renewing the permit.
