Unclaimed Property Compliance
We share a common goal, to provide citizens and customers with excellent service. While you never want to lose track of a customer, I want to assure you that if it does happen, I am going to work hard to reunite that individual or company with their lost property.
As state treasurer, I have the responsibility and privilege to work with businesses and other entities to provide an unclaimed property program to the citizens of Iowa. Your cooperation in the reporting process strengthens our trusted relationship with Iowans of past and present.
The Iowa unclaimed property law requires that all businesses review their records each year and report unclaimed assets to the Unclaimed Property Program of the Iowa treasurer's office. This report must be filed on or before November 1 of each year and should include all property that is reportable as of July 1.
My goal as state treasurer is to return this property to the rightful owner. Holders of unclaimed property play a vital role in this effort. By being aware of the law and submitting accurate reports with as much information as possible, your business takes the first step in reuniting owners with their lost property. We have compiled these instructions to aid you in reporting unclaimed property to the state of Iowa.
The treasurer’s office is glad to assist you in any way we can. Please do not hesitate to contact our office via phone at 515-281-7546 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome your feedback.
