What Itemized Deductions Will Look Like In 2018

January 03, 2018

We all (well, most of us) have been in this dreaded position before. You’re in the car, listening to music or your new favorite podcast, and you hear sirens. You start pleading: “No, no, no, please not me. Not today.” It is when the police car does not pass you by & the blue lights stick around that you realize a ticket is most likely in your future.

Minor traffic violations that result in a ticket are more of a nuisance than anything. Traffic tickets can not only result in an increase in insurance premium, but the most annoying part is often initially when 1) you have to pay an extra expense this month that you weren’t budgeting for and 2) you really just don’t have the time.

This is where the new startup TIKD comes in. They know your struggle, and using their own phrase, they want to be your “Traffic Ticket Champion.” You simply enter the amount of your traffic fine, upload a picture of your traffic ticket, and pay a fee online through their site (which is always lower than your ticket amount according to CNN). That’s it. There are no gimmicks, no hidden fees, and no additional charges from the company. TIKD then uses qualified and experienced attorneys to challenge your ticket in court to either get the charges dismissed or lower the fine. Any charges incurred in court are paid for by TIKD. I know what you’re thinking, and the answer is yes, TIKD will still pay the full price of your ticket at the end of the process even if it’s higher than what you paid them. Best of all, if you still end up with points on your license they will refund you the money you paid to them AND pay the price of the traffic ticket for you.

It may seem too good to be true, but TIKD assures on their website they have figured out the traffic ticket game and they know on average how much each particular type of ticket will cost all-in. For you lucky folks in Atlanta, Washington D.C., and some parts of Florida & Maryland you can start using TIKD immediately for your next traffic ticket.

If you are too busy with everyday life and don’t want to deal with your next traffic ticket, TIKD may be for you.
