Know the States. Know the Dates.
Identify the states in which you have a reporting obligation, or where you're incorporated - and take note of the appropriate deadlines.
Prioritize Efforts by Reporting Season.
There are two primary seasons when state unclaimed property reports are due, Fall & Spring. Although the bulk of reporting activities take place in the Fall, it is important to address unclaimed property year-round.
Allow Ample Time for Due Diligence.
Most states require due diligence mailings to be sent 60 to 120 days prior to the reporting deadline. Use this map to plan your mailings accordingly.
Avoid Fines, Penalties & Audit Risk.
Filing late reports, or not reporting entirely can raise red flags for state administrators and auditors. Stay ahead of the deadlines to reduce your risk of audit.
