Florida Statute 28.246(4) gives the Citrus County Clerk of Court the authority to offer payment plans which allows for partial payments of traffic citations and court related fines until paid in full. The plan will exclude any court ordered restitution, as this will need to be paid separately. There is an administrative fee of $25.00 to set up a payment plan pursuant to F.S. 28.24(26).
A monthly payment which is outlined in the agreement is required to be paid on time to avoid a defaulted payment plan. Should a payment plan default, delinquency fees will be added, your driving privileges will be suspended, and additional collections fees will be added.
NEW! Online Criminal Case and Traffic Payment Plan Application
The Clerk’s office is pleased to announce we have a new online application for criminal and traffic court case payment plans. To apply online, please visit our Secure Online Court Case Search (SCORSS) https://scorss.citrusclerk.org and locate your case. You can search by your case number or by your name. Once you have accessed your case, scroll to the financial section and select Payment Plan Application.
You will need to submit a separate application for each case you are requesting a payment plan, if you have multiple criminal or traffic cases with fines due. Your application will be reviewed and you will receive a response by email within 48 business hours. Per Florida Statute 28.24(26)(c), a one-time administrative fee of $25.00 will be charged to establish a payment plan, and is due at the time of sign up. This fee is per case. If there are any late fees on your case, they are also due at the time of sign up.
If you are unable to access your case through SCORSS to start the application process, or you do not have internet access, you can still fill out a personal data form and return the application to our office. Please note that if you have an issue that is time sensitive, you may need to visit our office for faster service.
