FDNY Permit Accounts and Certificates of Fitness

What happens if an FDNY permit account bill goes unpaid?

The FDNY initially sends each permit account owner (holder) a letter and invoice requesting payment. Balances that remain unpaid within 30 days of the initial notice will receive a fine equal to one-half of the annual fee for the permit account. If the account remains unpaid within one year of the initial billing date, an additional fee equal to one-half of the annual fee shall be imposed.

Unpaid fees may also lead to FDNY Notices of Violation and lien proceedings.
