Thank you for your reply.
You can file a request for relief from a penalty by registering as an "eClient" and then selecting and fillling out the section for "request for relief from penalty".
After doing this, you should contact the BOE and follow up with them for relief and request a payment plan. While the BOE is not obligated to do so, if this is your first violation they will likely allow you to get onto a payment plan.
