For credit cards, the penalty fees safe harbor for 2022 increased to $30 for a first late payment. The subsequent late payment safe harbor fee also increased to $41. The minimum interest charge disclosure threshold will remain unchanged for 2022 at $1. The loan amount at which HOEPA’s points-and-fees test comes into effect will increase to $22,969, and the HOEPA points-and-fees trigger will rise to $1,148.
