2003 New Brunswick speeding ticket paid through 2014 income

Yes it's true

A 2001 New Brunswick speeding ticket paid through 2014 income tax refund.
A speeding ticket issued in New Brunswick was paid through a 2014 fed income tax refund? Rev Canada sent a statement that $ 84.00 was redirected back to New Brunswick government for unpaid speeding ticket? I enquired about statute of limitations and was told there was none for traffic tickets just like murder? Ontario has no reciprocity with New Brunswick and B.C.
H.T.A. is provincial , how does Fed Gov't collect unpaid fines 14 tears later?

What are my options?
What do you think??

They have an agreement with the feds to collect unpaid NB provincial fines. Anyone who files a Canadian income tax return who has outstanding fines in NB will get it deducted automatically. If you don't have a Canadian income tax return, my understanding is that NB will sic a collection agency in your country of residence on you.

They're much more aggressive in pursuing outstanding fines than Ontario.

Statute of limitations is in regards to charging someone. Your situation is simply one of debt collection.

They wouldn't bring an action against you for an allegation of speeding in 2001 but they can and clearly will try to make good on the outstanding conviction and debt. I wonder if the amount deducted included interest.

You are not the only one that this has happened to this year, it looks like New Brunswick is cracking down on unpaid tickets. Here is a link to a story about it on CTV: http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/new-brunsw ... -1.2314327

As for recourse, I don't think there is any at this point. All the options for disputing this ticket would have expired back in 2001.
