Court Adopts Assessment of Penalties on Unpaid Taxed Expenses and Administrative Fees

By Order dated February 15, 2019, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania amended Rule 208 of the Pennsylvania Rules of Disciplinary Enforcement to establish the assessment of a monthly penalty for unpaid taxed expenses and administrative fees.

Rule 208(g)(5) is adopted to encourage satisfaction of outstanding obligations to the Disciplinary Board. Failure to pay taxed expenses and/or administrative fees within 30 days shall result in the assessment of a penalty, levied monthly at the rate of 0.8% of the unpaid principal balance. For good cause shown, the Disciplinary Board may reduce or waive the penalty assessment.

The new rule takes effect March 17, 2019.
