My friend only had to pay half his overdue court debt through an amnesty program. Can I do that too?

No. The amnesty program administered by the Iowa Department of Revenue concluded on November 30, 2010. The General Assembly enacted SF2428 (Delinquent Debt Collection Act) in 2008 and SF2383 (Debt Collection Act) in 2010. Both Acts made various changes to the existing debt collection programs and created new programs, including instituting a court debt amnesty program administered by the Iowa Department of Revenue from September 1, 2010, through November 30, 2010. The amnesty program allowed individuals owing court debt to pay only 50% of the fines and fees ordered by the court. No amnesty program has been statutorily enacted since 2010.
