# How do I figure per annum interest on a judgement?

Tacoma, WA |

not sure how to do this. Judgement ordered on 5/22/07 for \$1200. Payments made: 5/2007 \$200, August 2007-\$400, Dec. 2007 \$200 April 2008 - \$200 July 2008 - \$100

I am trying to figure out the amount still owed with interest. There is another judgement of \$1000 that was entereed in October of 2007 withthe same 12% per annum interest with no payments made.

The formula for interest is (Principal)x(Rate of Interest)/365x(Number of days)

You will need to treat each period between payments separately. The first \$200 payment was made immediately, so the Principal drops to \$1000, the interest rate is .12, and the number of days is 8/1/2007 - 5/22/2007=69 days.

(1000)x(.12/365)x(69) = \$22.68

Now do that for the other periods after subtracting the payments first from the interest, then the remainder from the principal.
