Wisconsin promissory note templates are used for transactions where a monetary balance is loaned from party to another. The templates help to ensure both parties are clear on how the balance will be paid back as well as the consequences the borrower will have to face for being late/missing a payment.

By Type (2)

Secured Promissory Note – Provides the lender with a layer of security that goes into effect if the borrower defaults on the loaned balance. The security consists of an item that the borrower owns (such as a home, vehicle, or boat) that is given to the lender to help cover the remaining unpaid balance.

Unsecured Promissory Note – Does not include security, resulting in an increase in the amount of risk the lender is faced with. Lenders should take extra time to screen potential borrowers to help ensure they will be responsible and worthy borrowers to minimize the chance of default.

Usury Rate

The legal rate of interest is 5%. Parties may agree to a different rate in a written agreement, subject to limitations that depend on the identity of the lender.


The rate of interest upon the loan or forbearance of any money, goods or things in action shall be $5 upon the $100 for one year and according to that rate for a greater or less sum or for a longer or a shorter time; but parties may contract for the payment and receipt of a rate of interest not exceeding the rate allowed in ss. 138.041 to 138.056, 138.09 to 138.14, 218.0101 to 218.0163, or 422.201, in which case such rate shall be clearly expressed in writing.
