  • INTEREST BEARING ACCOUNTS - If the account you are reporting is interest-bearing, you must report the interest rate!

    • provide them with the opportunity to contact you regarding the property before it is reported

    • be mailed at least 60 days prior to reporting.

    Penalties for the failure to perform due diligence are specified in §55-210.26:1 (B). The fine, not to exceed $50, is applied to each account upon which due diligence was not performed.
