Residents will need to register through the online portal to create an account if they have not already done so. Plans will need to be uploaded for permit applications and State licenses will have to be uploaded for contractor licenses.

Residents needing all other application types are encouraged to use the online portal and include all contact information. If a Permit Specialist has questions or needs further information, they will contact you. To pick up a permit that was applied for in person, call (918) 596-9456. A Permit Specialist will create an invoice residents can pay online and the specialist will provide plans electronically, either by email or through the permit portal.

Residents can make account deposits by mailing a check to the City of Tulsa Permit Center, 175 E. 2nd St., Ste. 450, Tulsa, OK 74103.
