The Beaufort County Treasurer announces the inception of the Unclaimed Property program. The purpose of the program is to create awareness and return to citizens and taxpayers unclaimed funds currently being held by the Treasurer’s Office. The mailing of unclaimed propery notices marks the beginning of this program, which were mailed on April 3, 2017.
“There are many types of unclaimed property but the most common for the Treasurer’s Office is undeposted checks.”, said Maria Walls, CPA, Beaufort County Treasurer, “It’s the taxpayers’ money and we are going to do everything we can to get it back into the hands of the people who earned it.”
After April 17, 2017, any unclaimed property will be remitted to the State Treasurer’s Office and taxpayers may search for and claim their funds through the State Treasurer’s Office. Each year millions of dollars are transferred to the State Treasurer’s Office by organizations that cannot locate the intended recipient.
