Parking Citation Overpayment Refund Program

If you overpaid a parking citation, you should receive a refund letter in the mail from the City once the overpayment is verified.  

If you believe an overpayment was made but you do not receive a refund letter, you may download a request form.

  • Please complete, sign and mail the request form to:
Parking Violations Bureau
P.O. Box 515214
Los Angeles, CA 90051-6514
  • The City will review the information provided on the request form. You may be asked to provide proof that you overpaid.

If a refund is due and no additional information is required, a refund check will be issued within 30-60 days. You may also choose to apply the credit to unpaid citations on your vehicle record.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please call 1-800-214-1526.
