Fine Schedule

General Fine Schedule

Effective September 1, 2017

Class C violations are generally punishable by a maximum fine of $500.

Zoning, fire safety, and health violations may have fines of up to $2000 per offense.

Most traffic related state offenses have a maximum fine of $200. But, there are many exceptions.  For example:

  • Failure to Maintain Financial Responsibility (no insurance) -- $175 to $350 fine for first offense
  • Failure to comply with warning sign in construction or maintenance zone (when workers are present) Tex Transp Code § 472.022(d)-- $2 to $400 fine
  • Failure to yield the right of way to another vehicle and a crash results from that failure to yield and a person other than the operator suffers bodily injury as a result -- $500 to $2,000 fine. Texas Transportation Code § 542.4045. 
  • If a person other than the operator suffers serious bodily injury, the offense is punishable by a fine of $1,000 to $4,000.
  • Since there are over 1,800 Class "C" Misdemeanors, it is not possible to list all fines on our website.  If your offense is not listed below, call the Court for your scheduled fine amount.

Collection Fees

The Tomball Municipal Court sometimes refers cases to an independent (privately owned) collection agency.  Pursuant to State law, a 30% collection fee is added to amounts owed.

Notice:

 Effective November 2, 2004, courts instituted a 30 percent collection fee on delinquent cases that are referred to a collection agency. 

Charge of additional 30% Collection Fee on Delinquent Cases: 
The State Legislature passed a bill authorizing the assessment of a 30% collection fee to any case in which a defendant had either failed to pay or failed to appear on or before their court date on all violations processed by the court; traffic, non-traffic and parking cases. All cases are referred to a delinquent collections agency when they have been delinquent for more than 60 days.


Time Payment Fees

Defendants who are set up on a payment plan will be assessed a one time time payment fee of $25 for each offense on or after the 31st day following the Court's order to begin a payment plan. This fee is a state fee and cannot be waived.
