Here are some previous similar questions with answers FYI - but note that the framing and siding and such to fill the gap left can commonly cost 50-100% as much as the removal, and of course if the chimney partly supports the house framing (much more common before about 1960) that of course increases the complexity and cost, as does removing a chimney which is within the building envelope rather than basically jsut tacked onto the outside of the house, so your specific situation can easily make a 50-100% or more difference in total cost. Also, obviously a brick/stone chimney costs more to remove than a "ready-set" type chimney made of siding and wood framing and a double-wall stainless flue inside it.
