AUSTIN - The Texas Department of Transportation is urging all toll users to pay their outstanding charges before Aug. 31, 2016. Otherwise, they'll run the risk of late fees and additional penalties.
TXDOT stopped issuing late fees for unpaid bills in February 2015 because they switched billing systems. During the suspension, toll users were given monthly statements of bills that weren't paid, but additional fees did not accumulate on top of the money owed.
In September 2016, the late fees will resume and all overdue tolls will begin to accrue additional fees, according to TXDOT.
