  • NYC Public Urination Penalty

    What is the penalty for Public Urination in New York City under 116-18 6, and does it go on your permanent record?

    Benjamin’s Answer

    I agree with the previous answer. However, it should be added that generally, the initial charge is treated as a misdemeanor.

    The summons is just that, a summons to appear in court and find out the charges against you. As per the previous, answer this summons should be taken seriously and the likely disposition should be a violation which is not a crime.

    The IRS website has a online withholding tax calculator. You answer a serious of short questions and at the conclusion it will suggest the number of exemptions to claim.
