This webinar will explore unclaimed property reporting and remittance requirements required by all U.S. jurisdictions with a particular focus on several key state programs. Our panel of unclaimed property experts will discuss the primary types of unclaimed property, dormancy and reporting deadlines, and strategies for reducing unclaimed property liability for businesses and their advisers.


States' efforts to enforce and collect unclaimed property are consistently on the rise. States leverage a multitude of programs (e.g., self-audit programs, compliance letter mailing campaigns, and audits) to enforce compliance.

Companies holding dormant unclaimed property should be aware of the steep penalties for noncompliance. Many states do offer voluntary compliance programs (VCPs), allowing for the abatement of interest and penalties. Understanding when to come forward with past-due remittances can be complicated. Businesses and accounting/tax professionals need to understand state rules for escheatment compliance.

Listen as our panel of unclaimed property experts reviews the basics of unclaimed property, voluntary disclosure agreements (VDAs), and implementing policies and procedures for escheatment.



  1. Unclaimed property: Introduction
  2. Examples of unclaimed property
  3. Rules of jurisdiction: Supreme Court cases
  4. Dormancy and Reporting deadlines
  5. Establishing written policies and procedures
  6. Best practices to limit exposure
  7. Voluntary compliance programs


The panel will cover these and other critical issues:

  • Types of property subject to escheatment
  • When a business should consider filing a VCP/VDA
  • California's newly created Voluntary Compliance Program, and other key state VCP/VDAs
