Forgiving Fines: The NYC Amnesty Program

Mayor de Blasio and the City Council authorized a three-month program that allows participants to resolve violations they received from New York City’s Department of Sanitation, Buildings, Transportation, Fire Department, Landmarks, Parks, or other New York City agencies, and which are now in judgement. The program, run by the New York Department of Finance, began on September 12th, 2016, and will continue through December 12th, 2016. 

Any business or individual who is named on a violation judgment that has been adjudicated by the Environmental Control Board may participate. The program covers two types of violations: those that only require payment and those that require both payment and corrective action.

To receive amnesty, you must pay all of your violations that are in judgement on or before December 12th, 2016. This means the City of New York has taken the legal step of filing a public record of your liability in court for the entire amount due, plus additional interest. The program does not include Parking and Real Property violations.

You can help the City get the word out by distributing the Forgiveness Fines flyers and use #nycforgivingfines on social media.
