BILL NUMBER:S5826 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to sanctions for credit card charge backs on motor vehicle fees PURPOSE: To authorize the Department of Motor Vehicles to impose sanctions against persons who pay for fees with a credit card and thereafter use the card "charge back" system to avoid payment. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Bill section 1 would amend section 202-b of the Vehicle and Traffic Law by prohibiting to provide that when the fee for one's business or driver's license and/or registration was paid by credit card, the person subsequently contests the credit card charge and causes the fee to be charged back to the Department, any further transactions with DMV in the name of such person may be prohibited until payment is made in full. The bill would take effect 120 days after receiving Executive approval. EXISTING LAW: Currently, the Vehicle and Traffic Law only authorizes a civil penalty and sanctions for dishonored checks. JUSTIFICATION: DMV has experienced an increase in a relatively new type of fraudulent activity associated with credit card transactions.
