Unclaimed Property Compliance
Iowa has a rich tradition of providing its citizens with excellent public service. As State Treasurer, I have the responsibility and privilege to work with businesses and other entities to provide a great 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 to determine whether they are in possession of any reportable unclaimed property due to the State of Iowa. The law also requires businesses to file an annual report and remit the assets to the Unclaimed Property Program of the Iowa Treasurer's Office. This report must be filed on or before November 1st of each year and should cover the 12 months preceding July 1st of that year.
Holders of unclaimed property play a vital role in reuniting property with its owners. By being aware of the law and submitting accurate reports, your business takes the first step in reuniting owners with their lost property – which is this office’s ultimate goal. 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 (phone 515-281-7546 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org). We welcome your feedback.
