Business / Taxes / Truth-In-Lending Act: The Truth-in-Lending Act requires every lender to provide a complete and clear disclosure of the key terms of any lending or leasing arrangement, plus a statement of all costs, before the agreement is finalized. The statement must include the finance charges stated in dollars and as an annual percentage rate (APR). For most loans, it must also include the total of the principal amount being financed, all the interest, fees, service charges, points, credit-related insurance premiums, payment due date and terms, and any other charges. The consumer lending section of the Act, which was first passed in 1968 and then simplified and reformed in 1980, is also known as Regulation Z. The consumer leasing section is known as Regulation M.
