Why is my fee (x) amount of dollars?

The new fee structure is based on the land use code the Property Valuation Administrator’s office (PVA) has on record for your property. The PVA has over 150 different Land Use codes that were grouped together into seven different land use density categories. Each category pays a different fee:
