JIS-Link Fee Schedule
General Public and State Agencies:
RCW 2.68.030 states in part: "The judicial information system committee shall develop a schedule of user fees for in-state non-court users and all out-of-state users of the judicial information computer system and charges for judicial information system products and licenses for the purpose of distributing and apportioning the full cost of operation and continued development of the system among the users."
County and City Governmental Agencies:
RCW 2.68.010 states in part: ". . . no fee may be charged to county or city governmental agencies within the state of Washington using the judicial information system for the business of the courts." Therefore, all fees and transaction charges are waived for these agencies.
The following schedule of user fees has been established pursuant to the requirement of RCW 2.68.030.
The Subscriber shall pay a non-refundable initial installation charge of One Hundred Dollars ($100.00). The installation charge is due prior to connection to any JIS-Link services.
The Subscriber will be furnished user IDs as requested. If additional user IDs are required, they shall be provided at no additional cost.
Monthly Usage Charges
The Subscriber shall pay a charge of $.065 (6½ cents) per transaction. A transaction equates to the execution of a command. A command is executed each time the user tells the system to respond; by pressing the ENTER key, or a PA, F, PF key or equivalent.
Subscribers will be billed monthly for JIS-Link usage charges incurred during the billing period. The account is payable in full on the date shown on the front of the invoice, under the heading "Due Date" (30 calendar days from the Invoice Date).
The AOC will apply a minimum charge of $6.00 to all JIS-Link invoices. If transaction charges are less than $6.00, the subscriber will be billed $6.00; if transaction charges total $6.00 or more, actual charges will be billed with no additional charge. If a subscriber has no transaction charges for the month, and no invoice needs to be mailed, no charges will be billed.
Pursuant to subparagraph 12.c. of the JIS-Link Basic Access Subscription and License Agreement, an account maybe terminated, without notice, for non-payment if the account has not been paid in full within fifteen (15) calendar days of the “Due Date” (date shown on the front of the invoice under the heading “Due Date”). Accounts more than 30 days past due are subject to collection.
To have a terminated account reinstated, the subscriber will be required to re-apply, pay all amounts previously due, and pay the installation fee.
Installation and usage charges are not subject to tax.
