Sask. makes changes to fine collection, late payments
Calls grow for Alberta to implement a provincial sales tax, even as Alberta premier Jason Kenney dismisses the idea.
REGINA -- The Government of Saskatchewan is suspending enforcement on fines and late payments for the next six months.
According to the province, this includes:
- Late payment fees
- Files sent to SGI that relate to driver’s licenses suspensions
- Files sent to the Canada Revenue Agency for set off
- Files sent to collection agencies
All fines still need to be paid. Fine payment options are still available, but provincial court offices will not be accepting payments.
“Please note that if your payment is necessary to obtain an SGI driver’s license that has been suspended, Court Services will forward payment information to SGI within 48 hours of processing your payment,” the province said in a news release.
The court offices will still be open to bail and restitution payments, but it is asked that a call is made beforehand to arrange the payment.
