Unclaimed Property: What is it? Do you have it? And what to do about it? Webinar


Unclaimed property compliance requirements have been in effect for many years.  However, many states have not aggressively pursued the collection of unreported property until recently.  As a result, many companies have failed to fully comply and are now facing unexpected compliance responsibilities and liabilities, as well as audit inquiries for prior periods as states move to supplement their budgets.

 

Unclaimed property is not a “tax.”  The entire amount of unclaimed property is due to the states – not just a percentage of it.  Except for a few states that have enacted special legislation, there are no statutory audit limitation periods.  States have the right and authority to assess an unclaimed property assessment on a company retroactively to the date the unclaimed property statute was enacted in their state.  As a result, a tolerable “one-year” assessment amount can be projected into an unimaginable and unexpected assessment.  Projections including 10-20 years are not uncommon!  In addition, unclaimed property risk can result in SOX disclosures and internal control deficiencies.  The Temple-Inland case in Delaware has brought even more focus to the area.

 

In this 90-minute live webinar Diane Yetter will be joined by Pat Reynolds, Senior Tax Counsel with the Council On State Taxation (COST), and they will teach you the fundamentals of unclaimed property and get you up-to-speed on the latest developments regarding unclaimed property across the states. In addition, you’ll get the opportunity to get answers to your questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
