The first of the year saw an increase in the application fees for Concealed Carriers in Utah.
According to the Utah.gov site, the finger print-based background check processing fee that the FBI charges has increased the overall cost of the CFP (Concealed Firearms Permit) from its original cost of $46.00 for residents and $51.00 for non-residents.
The new fee’s being charged are $53.25 for residents, and $63.25 for non-residents.
While the application fee of $25, and the Utah Background Check of $15 has not changed, the FBI Background Check has increased by $7.25 for the resident.
Utah isn’t allowed to profit any money from the FBI fee, so the price increase is purely because of the extra fees from the FBI which is transferred to the CFP applicant.

A warning from the state of Utah:
“Please use caution and do not renew your Utah CFP through any site other than the official Utah DPS site. We have received notification that there are other websites that indicate that they can renew your Utah Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP). These are not connected in any way to the Utah renewal website. Please be aware that the only website to renew your Utah CFP is: https://secure.utah.gov/concealed-firearms.”
