Does anyone decide to not pull permits?

We are starting to plan for next year's kitchen remodel and have talked to some GCs about it. Several have mentioned that they don't pull permits. Our area is known for having a very difficult permit process - making the appts, people failing things that originally passed, etc. So, I was wondering, has anyone remodeled their kitchen without a permit? This is more than just cosmetic cabinets and countertops. My understanding is that if any electrical or plumbing is touched, permits should be pulled. I'm thinking I need to stand my ground and make sure all permits are pulled, regardless of the cost and how much longer it takes. Can anyone share their permit experiences?
