Yes - in almost all code areas, work involving structural work or modifications or utilities - water, sewer, electrical (but usually not telephone or cable TV or similar low-voltage wiring) and sometimes roofing requires a building permit. Ditto to demolition in many areas.

Most building departments have a an on-line checklist for the types of work that need a permit - in some areas it is ALL work in excess of maybe $500-1000 because the permit fee is based on the job value and acts as a revenue source, not just a public safety measure.
