Lottery Sales Agent Application for Interest Rate Hardship Waiver

 

A lottery sales agent whose account was determined delinquent at a hearing and the debt was subject to compounding interest on or before June 30, 2022, may apply to the commissioner for a hardship waiver to reduce the amount of delinquent interest to an amount based on simple interest.

 

Simple interest is calculated only on the principal amount of a debt. In contrast, compound interest is based on the principal amount of the debt and the interest that accumulates on it in every period.

For example:

 
  • If an individual has a debt of $100 and it is subject to simple interest at the rate of 1.5% per month then the amount owed after 5 years would be $190 (the original debt of $100 plus the amount of interest owed of $90).

  • If an individual has a debt of $100 and it is subject to compound interest at the rate of 1.5% per month then the amount owed after 5 years would be $244.32 (the original debt of $100 plus the amount of interest owed of $144.32). In this case the amount of the hardship waiver would be $54.32. The difference between the amount of compound vs. simple interest. If approved, the lottery retailer would owe the state $190 (the underlying debt plus simple interest calculated at 1.5% per month).

 

NOTE: The hardship waiver does not waive the underlying debt that the lottery sales agent owes to the state.
