Revenue NSW is withdrawing COVID-19 fines for some offences.
Revenue NSW is withdrawing COVID-19 fines for the following offences:
- 'Fail to comply with noticed direction in relation section 7/8/9 - COVID-19' – Individual
- ‘Fail to comply with noticed direction in relation section 7/8/9 - COVID-19' – Company
- 'Unlawfully participate in outdoor public gathering - area of concern’ – Individual
- Fail to comply with requirement of public health - COVID-19' - Individual.
Revenue NSW will withdraw the fine. This means no further action will be taken in relation to the fine.
Revenue NSW may re-allocate the money you paid to any other unpaid fine in your name which has not been withdrawn.
Any money that cannot be re-allocated will be refunded to you.
Only the listed COVID-19 fines being administered by the Commissioner of Fines Administration will be withdrawn.
Where a fine has gone to a court it is up to the court to decide if you need to pay it.
If your fine is listed at a NSW court, or has been determined by a NSW court, you will need to contact the Court for information on how your fine can be resolved.
If your fine has been referred by a court to Revenue NSW, we can assist you in relation to payment options, but cannot withdraw the fine unless directed to by the court.
If you have paid by credit card within the last 12 months or by BPay at any time, you do not need to do anything. We will refund the money to you automatically.
If you have paid in any other way, Revenue NSW will contact you or you can call us on 1300 655 805, and we will help you with your refund.
You do not need to complete any further hours if this was the only fine you had on a WDO.
The fine is required to be paid. Other COVID-19 fines are not affected by this decision at this time.
