If your amnesty application is approved, you can resolve your violations by paying a reduced amount.
How much you must pay depends on whether you attended a hearing before it went into judgment.
- For violations where you attended a hearing and didn’t get a default penalty, you may pay only 50% of the base fine amount.
- If you failed to attend a hearing and got a default penalty, you must pay the full base fine amount of the violation, but your interest and default penalty will be waived.
If your amnesty application was approved, sign the agreement and write a check for the settlement amount payable to “NYC Department of Finance” for the amount you owe.
Mail the agreement and check to:
NYC Department of Finance
Awning and Accessory Sign Amnesty Program
59 Maiden Lane, 28th Floor
New York, NY 10038
Your agreement and payment must be postmarked no later than February 4, 2020. Online payments aren't accepted.
If you don’t resolve the violation and pay the amount of the base fine that you owe by the deadline, you will not be eligible for the amnesty and will be responsible for the full base fine, penalties, and interest.
