Collection of Unpaid Special Civil Part Filing Fees

​The New Jersey Department of the Treasury’s Division of Revenue will be responsible for collecting the amount due on returned checks (bad checks) that were used to pay for Superior Court filing fees or other court fees. The Division uses collection agencies and also deducts the amount due from state income tax refunds. The Division also has the right to charge a $50 penalty in addition to the amount of the returned check.
