The Division has determined that any interest or discount provided for in the Act shall be at the rate

of 4.11 percent. The method for computing the interest rate is based on the treasury constant

maturity rate for one-year treasury bills issued by the United States Government, as published by

the Federal Reserve Board, detailed in Texas Labor Code §401.023. This new interest rate is

effective beginning 10/01/16, through 12/31/16. The rate in effect for the previous period (7/01/16

through 9/30/16) was 4.03 percent.
