My prefix is when you did something bad,

somewhere in the middle you can see a choice between a yes and a no

And lastly I have a financial suffix,

I also like keeping things in order!

What am I?

Hint : The prefix sounds like but not the same spelling

    $\begingroup$ Can this really count as a Riley riddle without an infix? (I make no comment on whether being a Riley riddle is a good thing or not -- there have been an awful lot of them lately -- but if you're going to call it one then it should probably actually be one...) $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Apr 25 '18 at 11:27

    $\begingroup$ @GarethMcCaughan I hereby declare that the infix, while highly encouraged, is optional for Riley riddle status. $\endgroup$ – Riley Apr 25 '18 at 12:31

    $\begingroup$ @Riley Ah, well, but "the author is dead" and I'm not sure you get to decide what counts as a Riley riddle merely because you are Riley :-). $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Apr 25 '18 at 16:53

Perhaps:

Syntax

My prefix is when you did something bad

Syn sounds like 'sin'

somewhere in the middle you can see a choice between a yes and a no

Y\N is a common abbreviation of Yes\No

And lastly I have a financial suffix

Tax is a financial term

keeping things in order\proper order

Syntax is the proper arrangement of words in a sentence.

Is the answer.

Deathrate

My prefix is something bad

Death is bad.

And lastly I have a financial suffix

Rate is a common term used in finance.

I also like keeping things in order

Deathrate helps to keep the population of country in order as overpopulation is bad.
