Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reminding motorists that they may use the convenience of the online option to pay traffic ticket penalties via the TAJ website at www.jamaicatax.gov.jm, using a valid credit card, instead of visiting a tax office to do so. Online payments requires customers to enter the traffic ticket number, as well as their Driver’s Licence Number for the ticket information to be displayed, to make a payment.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), which has responsibility for data entering the ticket information into the Traffic Ticket Management System (TTMS), has given a commitment that tickets will be uploaded within 10 days of being issued. As a result tickets may not be available for payment online, within the specified 10 days. Please note that motorist may contact the JCF Traffic Ticket Data Centre for assistance at 876-836-0270 or 876-382-0238, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm Mondays to Thursdays and from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm on Fridays.
Customers may also visit the nearest Tax Office to make the payment. The cashier will check to see if the traffic ticket information has already been data entered by the JCF, if not, the cashier will accommodate the entering of the data, as it is required for the payment to be processed. Where discrepancies are found in the keying of data, customers will be advised to contact the JCF Traffic Ticket Data Centre. Customers are reminded to check their receipt before leaving the Cashier.
For further information persons may contact the Tax Administration’s Customer Care Centre at 888-Tax-Help (888-829-4357) toll-free or visit the TAJ website www.jamaicatax.gov.jm.
Payments made online or inline at a Tax Office are automatically updated on to the central TTMS.
Currently tickets can be paid at TAJ, whether online or inline, within twenty-one days, after which it becomes a Court matter.
TAJ continues to collaborate with the Jamaica Constabulary Force and other critical stakeholders to further improve the Traffic Ticket Management System (TTMS).
