Enquiries relating to COVID-19-related fines
Following three test cases heard by the Supreme Court of NSW, Revenue NSW have announced the withdrawal and refund of 33,121 COVID-19-related fines. The press release is available here. The Supreme Court is yet to publish their judgment and is not expected to publish the judgment until the end of February 2023 at the earliest.
Accordingly, further information relating to COVID-19 related cases listed for hearing can only be provided once the Supreme Court decision is published and affected cases can be identified. The same applies to matters that have already been finalised.
We will provide a further update as soon as one is available.
For fines issued by Revenue NSW (that have not been court elected), please contact Revenue NSW on 1300 138 118 to discuss your situation.
