What is the difference between the current principal balance and the payoff quote?
The current principal balance is the amount still owed on the original amount financed without any interest or finance charges that are due. A payoff quote is the total amount owed to pay off the loan including any and all interest and/or finance charges. Payoff quotes are calculated to cover a 30-day period of calculated interest and/or finance charges. After that 30-day period a new quote is necessary for the correct amount required to pay off the loan.
