Forgiving Fines: The NYC Amnesty Program
The City of New York is reducing penalties and interest for many violations issued by the Department of Sanitation, Department of Buildings, and other city agencies through the NYC Amnesty Program .
Take advantage of the amnesty program before it expires! Amnesty will run from September 12, 2016 – December 12, 2016.
In order to sell your property it must be free from violations, if you have violations this is the best time to take care of them.
Violations must be in judgment. 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.
Criminal violations and violations over $25,000 are excluded. Other limitations, exclusions and eligibility requirements apply.
