Pay Fines and Fees

How do I pay online?

To pay online, you must receive notification from DCWP (e.g., an Offer of Settlement letter, a letter regarding scale and/or petroleum inspection fees, Consent Order with OLPS, etc.). Note: Offers of settlement must be paid at least one day before your scheduled hearing.

If you had an online account with DCWP before July 24, 2023, please use the same email address you provided DCWP. This will allow you to link your business records to the new system. 

  1. Create Account.
  2. When you are logged in, you will see a Business Dashboard with your business records, including all license records, submitted and draft application forms, pending fees, and other records related to your business.
  3. On your dashboard, you will be able to select actions to view settlement offers; submit a Cure Certification; and pay fines and fees.  

If you do not have an online account with DCWP, you can create account and link your business using a PIN.

  1. Create Account.
  2. On your Dashboard, select the "Services tab."
  3. Select "Link Business to My Account."
  4. Enter PIN found on your Renewal License Application or on the Acknowledgement of Application printout from the DCWP Licensing Center or NYC Small Business Support Center. Note: If you do not have a PIN, Request PIN.
  5. Click "Link Business."
  6. Confirm your Business Name and Address.
  7. Return to your Business Dashboard to view linked business records, including applicable license records, submitted and draft application forms, pending fees, and other records related to your business.
  8. On your dashboard, you will be able to select actions to view settlement offers; submit a Cure Certification; and pay fines and fees.  

You must pay with a credit card. Credit cards accepted include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover Card. Credit card payments are subject to a convenience fee. You cannot pay by electronic check.

Note: You cannot use a credit card to make an installment payment. You can use a credit card to pay a balance in full.

If you need to make payment to more than one record, you must submit payments separately. Each record is a separate credit card transaction.
