Wisconsins New Judgement Interest Rate

A new law recently passed in Wisconsin has modified the rate of interest on all civil money judgments.  Until recently, if a business or individual obtains a money judgment in Wisconsin, interest accrues on the judgment at an interest rate of 12 percent per year until the judgment is paid in full.  However, under the new law, the interest rate on a judgment is now the prime rate plus 1 percent.  The prime rate is the reported rate by the Federal Reserve Board.  The current prime rate is 3.25 percent, which means any interest on a judgment will accrue at 4.25 percent.
