The Billing and Deferral Unit establishes billing accounts for persons who have filed an application requesting to have filing fees deferred. Other accounts established by the unit include billing accounts for jury fee judgments, complex litigation cases, court ordered fees, or penalties resulting from failure to comply with an order of the court.
Additional responsibilities of this unit include submitting non-paying parties to the Tax Intercept Program. This may result in tax return refunds being intercepted and applied to debts due to the court. These accounts are also transferred to an outside collections agency where additional charges will be incurred. Other functions of this unit include preparing an itemized claim requesting reimbursement from the State of Arizona for prosecution costs of incarcerated prisoners as authorized by ARS 31-227(a).
The Billing and Deferral Unit processes payments received on billing accounts. Payments may be made with Visa, MasterCard or American Express by phone; please have the case number or account number available.
Payments may also be mailed and must be in the form of a money order or cashier check. All other forms of payment will be rejected and returned to sender. The parties' full name, case number and account number must be noted on the money order or cashier check to ensure payment is properly applied.
Please remit payments to:
Clerk of the Court
