KINGSTON, Jamaica—With two weeks remaining until the October 31 close of the traffic ticket amnesty, Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) says that it will operate three additional offices on the last two Saturdays of the month, October 21 and 28, to accommodate motorists paying outstanding traffic tickets.

The additional tax offices that will be opened on Saturdays are in Port Maria; Santa Cruz and Kingston.
These will be in addition to the seven tax offices of St Andrew, Montego Bay, Mandeville, Savanna-la-mar, Spanish Town, May Pen and St Ann's Bay, that were opened on Saturdays, and will also operate from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.

Portmore Tax Office will continue its normal Saturday operations from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, the TAJ said in a statement.

The TAJ disclosed that since the start of the amnesty on August 2 up to mid-October, approximately $223 million in outstanding traffic fines have been collected.

Motorists also have the option of paying fines online, at their convenience, by logging into the TAJ Enterprise Tax Portal at www.jamaicatax.gov.jm, using their client login or creating an account (where applicable). Once logged in on the eServices page, individuals may select the option to pay traffic ticket, enter their ticket number and Driver's Licence number and pay using a credit card.
