Annual Fee Adjustments

CDFW is required to adjust the fees annually (Fish & G. Code, § 713). The annual fee adjustments are based on changes in the Implicit Price Deflator for State and Local Government Purchases of Goods and Services, as published by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Annual filing fee adjustments are posted on CDFW’s website prior to November 1 of the year before they become effective.

* Additional county fees may apply. Please check with your county clerk’s office for details.
