Which word do you use in this sentence?

There is a big argument with my family about which word to use in this sentence, passed or past. "My bill is passed/past due." Which one is correct. I no its silly but everone seems to be mixing up the definitions of the words trying to prove themselves right.

  • Past as in past, present, future. Passed is past tense of pass, which bills do not do (unless they're really stupid and live in CA; those bills pass. ha ha ha, I crack myself up.)
