PayTHEATolls.com is operated by Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority’s Collections Service Center.  Drivers will receive a Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority Toll-By-Plate Notice if they were traveling on the beautiful Selmon Expressway without the system recognizing a valid transponder.  Drivers who received a Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority collections notice and have a SunPass account, it may mean that their license plate is not associated with their SunPass account or the license plate information on the account is inaccurate or there may be something wrong with the SunPass account in question (i.e. no funds on the account or an expired credit card).

Please note under Flordia law the owner of the auto is responsible for a toll even if the owner was not driving the vehicle (i.e. let a friend or family member borrow the car).  The only event in which the owner may not be held liable for the toll bill is if the car was stolen.  The owner would have to provide a police report to get the toll bill waived in the event of a stolen auto.

www.PayTHEATolls.com Notes

  • Easy to use
  • ASworn Affidavit must have been sent to the Division of Motor Services to have the plate cancelled
  • Toll payments can be made using any major credit card (i.e. American Express, Visa, Discover, Mastercard)
  • Those who do not pay a toll may find a hold on the registered owner’s vehicle next time they attempt to register the car (which means they will not be able to drive the car legally if its not registered)
  • Please allow up to 72 hours for the registration hold to be released once the toll payment is made and confirmed
