- Comptroller Requests Information on 1999 Property Values and Taxes
I want to reunite Texans with their lost and forgotten money and property. They earned it, and I want to do all I can to see that these assets get back to their rightful owners.
As incredible as it may seem, thousands of Texans have cash and other valuable assets that they are unaware of, or have simply forgotten. The state is currently holding more than $700 million in unclaimed funds. Businesses and financial institutions have turned this property over to the state because they could not find the owners.
The Unclaimed Property List is available on the Comptroller's Window on State Government. The list was published in Texas newspapers on Sunday, October 17. Take a moment to look for your name under the city where you now live and other cities where you have lived in the past. If your name is on the list, the list contains all the information you need to reclaim your property. There is no time limit to file a claim.
As the state's chief fiscal officer, I want Texans to keep more of their hard-earned money. That philosophy also applies to unclaimed property. This money belongs in the hands of its rightful owners, and I want to return it as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please help me.
