Judicial Interest Rate


2017 Judicial Interest Rate is 4.25%

Pursuant to authority granted by La. R.S. 13:4202(B)(1), as amended by Acts 2001, No. 841, the Louisiana Commissioner of Financial Institutions has determined that the judicial rate of interest for calendar year 2017 will be four and one quarter (4.25%) percent per annum.

La. R.S. 13:4202(B)(2) provides that the publication of the commissioner's determination in the Louisiana Register "shall not be considered rulemaking within the intendment of the Administrative Procedure Act, R.S. 49:950 et seq., and particularly R.S. 49:953." Therefore, (1) a fiscal impact statement, (2) a family impact statement, (3) a poverty impact statement, (4) a small business statement, (5) a provider impact statement, and (6) a notice of intent are not required to be filed with the Louisiana Register.
