Pay That Ticket or Lose Your Refund

D.C. Metropolitan Police Department headquarters

If you don't pay your speeding ticket in D.C., you could see a smaller tax refund.

The tentative budget includes a plan for the city government to collect outstanding traffic fees and fines by digging into drivers' tax refunds.

The District thinks it could collect $2.5 million per year.

The plan would only affect D.C. drivers, who account for fewer than 20 percent of tickets issued in the District.
