Not where I live

I live in Ohio - which doesn't help you much - but here the county has relaxed the building permit requirements. If the deck is free-standing (not attached to the house) and lower than (some number of) inches, no permit is needed.

Call your local zoning office and ask them if a permit or inspection is required. Chances are, they don't want to deal with it because everyone builds decks and they don't have time to check all of them.
