Allen Municipal Court offers several payment options for court fines, costs and fees.

  1. Online
  2. Phone
  3. Mail
  4. Drop Box
  5. In-Person

You can pay your municipal court fines, costs and fees securely through our online system.  To use this service, you must know your citation number, driver’s license number, date of birth, and/or vehicle plate number. Additional fees may apply for using this service.

Returned Checks

A $25 fee will be charged for all returned checks, regardless of the reason for return. Payment for returned checks and fees must be by cash, money order or cashier’s check. Personal checks and credit cards will not be accepted to clear a returned check.

It is the responsibility of the defendant to clear a returned check immediately. The Municipal Court may issue a warrant for your arrest if the matter is not resolved in a timely manner.

Credit/Debit Card Payments

Municipal Court accepts credit/debit payments from VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. When using a credit/debit card, the person named on the card must be present to pay with that card. There is a 3% transaction fee assessed for credit/debit card transactions.

Warrant Payments

Warrant payments made by mail, phone, or online will not clear the warrant(s) until the Municipal Court receives and processes your payment. The court will usually receive your payment the following business day from the date you paid online or by phone. Until the payment is received and processed you are still subject to arrest.

Be advised that voluntary payment by mail, phone or online will result in a conviction and will be reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety and forfeits any right to request a driving safety class or deferred disposition for possible dismissal of your citation.

Please carefully consider all your options before remitting payment in full for any citation.
