Business seminar to explain unclaimed property reporting
Free training features step-by-step instructions for filing
Bend – Area businesses and organizations are invited to learn more about reporting unclaimed property to the state at a half-day seminar scheduled in Bend this spring and summer.
Unclaimed property is lost financial assets such as uncashed payroll checks and abandoned financial accounts that a business or organization holds for an unreachable party.
The seminar is free, but preregistration is required.
The seminar will be held:
June 17, 2014
8:30 a.m. to Noon
Deschutes County Building
1300 NW Wall St., DeArmond Room
New reporting tools and information will be shared with seminar attendees this year.
State law requires all businesses and organizations to remit unclaimed property to the Department of State Lands, which houses the state’s unclaimed property program. All unclaimed funds are held in trust forever for the rightful owner in the Common School Fund, a trust fund whose earnings are sent twice yearly to Oregon’s 197 public school districts.
