Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is advising taxpayers that it has resumed the collection of payments for traffic ticket fines online or at any of the tax offices across the island.
TAJ pointed out, however, that only traffic tickets issued within the last 21 days and presented for payment can be receipted by TAJ.
About a month ago, TAJ advised taxpayers that it was experiencing an “unavoidable challenge” and was unable to collect payments for traffic ticket fines.
It said then that the suspension was as a result of the finalised list of traffic offence codes not yet being provided to the Revenue Authority to effect changes to its systems, to enable the collection of the fines as defined by the recent change to the applicable law.
At the time, TAJ also said the respective agencies were working to address the issue as quickly as possible.
In its release on Thursday, TAJ apologised to the public for the inconvenience and dislocation caused by the suspension of the service.
