Joe was the unhappy recipient of NYC parking tickets, which he ignored because he didn’t have the funds to pay these dastardly orange epistles. Joe owes NYC DOF a bunch of money for fines, penalties, and interest on these moribund parking tickets which are now in default judgment. One option for Joe is to enter into a payment plan with NYC DOF.
Here is how to qualify…
Larry’s note: This information is old. Check out the new guidelines for parking ticket payment plans on the Evil Empire’s website.
- Private citizens must live or work in NYC
- Business owners must work or operate in the five boroughs
- You must owe in excess of $500 in parking ticket judgment debt
- Or, you must owe in excess of $350 in towing debt
- Individual vehicle owners can visit a Finance Business Center to discuss eligibility for a payment plan without an appointment.
- However, if your vehicle has been towed, Finance advises you call for an appointment to ensure time to complete the extra paperwork that a tow-payment plan requires. Call the Collections Division Call Center at 212-440-5400 (or –5401) to schedule an appointment.
- Business Vehicle Owners must have an appointment. Call the Collections Division Call Center at 212-440-5447 to schedule an appointment to discuss eligibility for a payment plan for commercial vehicles – towed or not. A Finance representative will meet with you at the 2nd floor, Window #4 at 66 John Street, New York, NY.
To qualify for a payment plan
Debtors must meet certain criteria, make an immediate down payment and be able to pay the remaining balance according to a set schedule. In addition, to qualify for a payment plan debtors must also:
- Present a valid driver’s license, vehicle registration and vehicle insurance
- Document their source of income
- Be approved by a Finance Collections Division collector or a Finance representative in one of our business centers.
- Make a specified down payment, as determined during the interview process.
- With or without an appointment, when you meet with the representative, you will be required to submit a Financial Statement. You may also be asked to provide documents which confirm your identification.
Has this happened to you? Any luck entering into a payment plan?
