Re: Account Number .....

Dear Sirs,

I am requesting that you waive the penalty fee and interest assessed on the above referenced account for the month of.......,2010.The payment here was sent only one day late because of end of the year mailing issues.The payment was received only one day late and I am asking that you waive this here as a one time , one day late receipt.I have been timely for all other payments and even this one was received.To me this is fair that such penalty fee and interest be waived here.

Sincerely yours.

I did this same mistake last year. My liability never exceeds a few thousand dollars. I paid the full amount just one day late and would never intentionally have done this.

So write your letter and ask them to waive it based on your good history.
