North Carolina has had an ongoing battle for and against payday lending since 1997 when legislation was approved and passed for allowing payday lending in the state. After this payday legislation expired in the year 2001, it became illegal to conduct payday lending in North Carolina. As of 2009, by law payday loans remain prohibited in the state of North Carolina. Lenders in this state must possess a license to deposit checks into someone's account and the state sets a minimum fee for cashing a post-dated check.
