Past Due Accounts
Accounts that are not paid in full by the due date will be referred for collections to a collection agency. Once the debt is referred collections, collection costs will be added to your account. Collection costs can be assessed up to 25% of the debt owed. This is allowable under Minnesota Statute, section 16D.07 and 16D.11. Private collection agencies may charge up to 40% of the debt owed.
