    The Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller’s office will dedicate two weeks at the end of February and early March to help citizens reset the past and potentially save a lot of money. The Clerk’s office will waive collection fees for a limited time only when citizens pay their outstanding fines and fees in full. Citizens can look forward to saving up to 40% during this special campaign as they have the option of paying on a single case or paying on as many cases as they can.

    Anyone with a Pinellas County case that’s gone unpaid for more than 90 days and has had additional ‘collection’ fees assessed, can visit the locations listed below starting Monday, February 27 – Friday, March 10, 2017 (excluding weekends) to avoid paying the collection fees.

    • North County Branch – 29582 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater, FL
    • Clerk’s Tyrone Branch – 1800 66th St. N., St. Petersburg, FL
    • Pinellas County Justice Center – 14250 49th St. N., Clearwater, FL

    The office locations will be open during regular hours of operation (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) with the exception of some extended hours. The Pinellas County Justice Center is the only location that will be open until 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday of each week. Acceptable forms of payment include cash, check, money order and credit card.
