Pay for parking violation tickets in New York City (NYC) by mail, in person or online. You may be eligible for a payment plan if you have more than $350 in parking ticket debt.
To pay for parking violation tickets online, first search for any outstanding debt on the NYC Department of Finance's website using a violation number or a car plate number. You need to visit a Finance Business Center to view outstanding debt and all other violations if you have more than 250 of them. To pay for any outstanding debt on the website, use a credit or debit card or an eCheck. As of 2015, paying by credit or debit card entails a 2.49 percent fee.
To pay for parking violation tickets by mail, write a check for the violation amount on the ticket, and make it payable to the NYC Department of Finance. To pay for the tickets in person, visit the Finance Business Center or the Office of the Sheriff nearest to you.
Setting up a payment plan can help you avoid having your vehicle towed if you do not have the money needed to pay off the debt. To sign up for a payment plan, first choose the length of the plan, which determines the amount of interest you have to pay in addition to the debt. Then, fill out a Payment Plan Request Form, and bring it to a Finance Business Center.
