Annual Adjustment of Dollar Threshold for Exempt Consumer Credit and Lease Transactions

June 27, 2011

The Federal Reserve Board on June 13, 2011 adjusted Regulation Z (Truth in Lending) and Regulation M (Consumer Leasing) by increasing the dollar threshold for exempt consumer credit and lease transactions. Transactions at or below the threshold are subject to the protections of the regulations. These adjustments reflect the annual percentage increase in the consumer price index that was in effect as of June 1, 2011. These annual adjustments are required by statute and will take effect on January 1, 2012.
