No more dodging traffic fines in Saskatchewan Print E-mail
Thursday, 14 February 2008

REGINA, Sask. -- The province of Saskatchewan has reached a deal with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to withhold income tax refunds and GST rebates from drivers who have unpaid traffic fines in the province.

The partnership takes effect this tax season and applies to all fines laid under provincial statutes that are payable to the province. CRA will garnish the returns for any outstanding fines under the deal, the province has announced.

Saskatchewan has also established a new Fine Collection branch to get tough on drivers who don't pay their traffic fines.

"One of my priorities is to ensure we do the best possible job collecting money owed to this province," Justice Minister Don Morgan said. "We will continue our work in this area to make it clear there are serious consequences for people who do not pay their fines."

If you have an outstanding traffic ticket from Saskatchewan, you can pay it by calling 800-661-2024.
