2016 New Jersey Revised Statutes
Title 39 - Motor Vehicles And Traffic Regulation
Section 39:5-45 - Itemized Receipt.
39:5-45 Itemized receipt.
Any person who collects fines, costs or cash bail, for a violation of this subtitle, shall deliver to the defendant a proper itemized receipt, which may be either a "proper itemized manual receipt" or a "proper itemized computer generated receipt." Such receipt shall be created either manually or by computer. In the event that the payment was made by mail, the defendant shall only be entitled to a copy of the receipt if the defendant provides the court with a stamped self-addressed envelope. If a manual receipt is issued, a copy of that receipt shall be filed with the case. For the purposes of this section, a "proper itemized manual receipt" is one that is pre-numbered and which includes: the name and signature of the person who received the payment, the date the payment was received, the name of the defendant, the amount paid and the complaint or docket number. A "proper itemized computer generated receipt" is one that is pre-numbered and which includes: the identifying code of the person who received the payment, the date and time the payment was received, the name of the defendant, the amount paid and the complaint or docket number. Any outstanding charges against an offender may be immediately dismissed upon the offender's presentation of a proper itemized receipt issued pursuant to this section evidencing the payment of the required fines and costs. Properly itemized receipts, for use by municipal courts, may contain supplemental information as appropriate, but shall be on a form approved by the Administrative Director of the Courts.
