The Minnesota attorney general has interpreted the following strategy to be the legal doctrine for Minnesota consumers. On the other hand, there are a significant number of payday loan legal counselors who disagree with the MN regulators. For brick-n-mortar lenders, these fee structures must be abided by; unless a tribe is the lender. So far, to our knowledge, no Internet lender has chosen to invest the financial costs associated with challenging the Minnesota AG.:
"Internet payday lenders that lend money to Minnesota borrowers must comply with state laws, even if their physical headquarters are in another state. Under Minnesota law, for loans between $350 and $1,000, payday lenders cannot charge more than 33 percent annual interest plus a $25 administrative fee."

"For loans less than $350, Minnesota law caps the fees that may be charged on a sliding scale as follows: $5.50 for loans up to $50; 10 percent of the loan amount plus a $5 fee on loans between $50 and $100; 7 percent of the loan amount (minimum of $10) plus a $5 fee on loans between $100 and $250; and 6 percent of the loan amount (minimum of $17.50) plus a $5 fee on loans between $250 and $350."
