Did You Know?
As a business operating in Texas, you are required by the Texas Property Code to report to the state any unclaimed bank accounts, uncashed checks or wages, customer/vendor credits or any other outstanding monetary obligation. Property is considered unclaimed when you have not been in contact with the owner for a certain period of time.
An Important Due Date
Unclaimed property reports are due on or before July 1 of each year. Texas Property Code Section 74.709 provides that, in addition to penalties and interest, a holder who fails to pay or file a property report timely is subject to a civil penalty not to exceed $100 per day for each day the report or payment is delinquent.
