CFPB ISSUES FINAL 'TILA' ADJUSTMENTS
updated 08/24/14 11:35 AM
Rule Reviews Dollar Amounts
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is issuing its final rule on Truth in Lending Act (TILA) annual threshold adjustments, amending the regulatory text and official interpretations for Regulation Z, which implements TILA.

The bureau is required every year to calculate the dollar amounts for several provisions in Regulation Z.

The final rule reviews the dollar amounts for provisions implementing amendments to TILA under the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 (CARD Act), the Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act of 1994 (HOEPA), and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act).

These amounts are adjusted, where appropriate, based on the annual percentage change reflected in the Consumer Price Index in effect on June 1, 2014. The minimum interest charge disclosure thresholds will remain unchanged in 2015.
