(KFVS) - State Treasurer Clint Zweifel announced today he has reached an important milestone, returning Unclaimed Property to more than 500,000 accounts since January 2009.
This is the most returned under any State Treasurer since Unclaimed Property became part of the office in 1993.
“Part of my job is to make Unclaimed Property as easy to return to the people who own it as I possibly can,” Treasurer Zweifel said. “By cutting red tape, reducing bureaucracy and modernizing the process, I have returned more than $155 million to more than 500,000 tax payers and cut wait times in half. This is money I hold in trust for tax payers, money people can use to pay bills, buy groceries or even take an unexpected vacation. I hold more than $750 million in Unclaimed Property for more than 4.4 million account owners and will continue to do all I can to reunite this money with the individuals to whom it belongs.”
