Do Unpaid NTTA Tolls Affect Your Credit?
Thousands of Texans have unpaid tolls, and the NTTA has some shrewd tactics for getting customers to pay up. The agency can turn over past due accounts to collection agencies, but this can no longer damage your credit score.
Before the National Consumer Assistance Plan (NCAP) was enacted in 2015, this definitely wasn’t the case. Parking tickets and traffic citations could put a serious black mark on your credit rating – in some cases, dropping your score by 50 to 100 points.
The NCAP was developed to improve the accuracy of credit reporting, and as of 2017, any debts that did not arise from an agreement by a consumer, such as red light camera citations, toll road fines, and vehicle storage costs are no longer reportable.
