There is a (new) fine line for those doing it tough
Am I eligible?
It’s important to note that fine reduction isn’t automatically applied to your fine.
Revenue NSW will conduct an assessment and determine whether your fine could be paid in full via a payment plan arrangement or resolved through a work development order (which essentially is completing either unpaid work or participating in a course or program). Following this, Revenue NSW will make a decision.
Do you need payment flexibility?
You are now able to set up a payment plan at any time, which previously was only considered when a fine was overdue.
Does this apply to my fine?
traffic / speeding fines;
police infringement notices for stealing
police infringement notices for offensive behaviour; and
police infringement notices for intoxicated and disorderly conduct.
Some fines are exempt
Voting-related fines, jury duty fines and fines issued to body corporates are not included.
