Citizens in every community want options to choose from, and Broward County Clerk of Courts Brenda D.

Introduced on Nov. 8, PayItBrowardClerk allows citizens to make payments using an online platform or mobile app.
“I am always looking to enhance how my constituents are able to pay their tickets, fines, fees and court costs”
– Broward County Clerk of Courts Brenda D. Forman
Along with giving residents the ability to make payments from their devices at any time and from anywhere, PayItBrowardClerk also includes a secure storage feature that ensures personal and payment information stays safe and can be easily accessed during future logins. Users can also view receipts for previous court payments and set up reminders for due dates to reduce the risk of delinquency.
This flexible and convenient digital citizen experience replicates the ease of use individuals have come to expect and appreciate from online retail experiences while also driving revenue collection for Broward County’s court system by speeding up the payment cycle—ensuring that the county government can quickly fund community projects that similarly improve citizens’ quality of life.
