Alaska Promissory Note Templates (2)

Updated July 27, 2023

An Alaska promissory note is a legal document that outlines the terms of money borrowed, by an individual or entity, for a term and the interest rate agreed upon by the parties. In addition, the lender may charge fees for late payment and in the event of default by the borrower. Once the money has been transferred, with the note signed by both parties, the document goes into effect and the borrower will be liable for the payment to the lender.

Usury Rate – For loans less than $25,000, 5% above the 12th Federal Reserve District interest rate on the day the loan was made, or 10%, whichever is greater. If the amount is more than $25,000, there is no maximum rate.
