What are the pros and cons to permitting your basement as you finish it??

What he said, but not all localities require a permit for a basement refinish. They generally do, since it increases the property value, and it is a gument revenue thing. Check local code.

Something to consider, codes generally require an alternate exit route if none is present. That means an egress window or another door.
