The Clerk of the Circuit Court and County Comptroller is pleased to offer the convenience of online payments through Sarasota Clerk e-Pay, a secure, web-based payment option. With this new service, citizens who want to pay traffic, civil infractions, or criminal fines and fees in full can do so online 24/7.
Sarasota Clerk e-Pay gives you the flexibility of completing transactions after hours, from home or office, on the road - and from another county or state, a plus for out-of-county customers.
Customers need only to log on to e-Pay with citation or case information to begin the process. You will be able to do online searches by name, citation, ticket, or case number. If unable to locate the information with this initial search, users will be directed to ClerkNet, the Clerk and Comptroller's public access system, where more in depth searches can be conducted.
Sarasota Clerk e-Pay allows you to choose a payment method (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, as well as electronic check) to complete your transaction, and after payment your receipt can be printed, or sent to you by email or text.
The third-party vendor selected for this online service, a nationally recognized electronic payment provider who conducts business with more than 2000 judicial and law enforcement customers across the nation, also provides service to several other Florida Clerks of the Circuit Court.
