IRS - Unclaimed Funds

IRS - Unclaimed Funds | Uncaimed Money | Scoop.it
It's true, and it belongs to over 1.3 million tax payers that did not file for a refund. There is a three year deadline, which really equates to a four year gap, between filing your money and losing it to the government.
Jeffrey Richman's insight:

The IRS is actually giving something back instead of taking from us.  Oh, wait a minute, they DID take from us, too much - and now they're giving it back!

Make sure that you read this, if the IRS has money for you that you've given them, definitely get it back.

Jeffrey Richman's insight:

I think that it's great that the WSJ has done an article on this business, however, they have a warning about scammers and doing searches for free.  I do agree with this if you can find the money yourself on the sites that they mention, however, much of the money that I and others in Asset Recovery locate is not on any website and the rightful owner needs our help or the funds will be taken by the state (called escheatment).

Should Police Departments Keep Proceeds From Unclaimed Property

Should Police Departments Keep Proceeds From Unclaimed Property | Uncaimed Money | Scoop.it
State law requires departments to transfer profits from unclaimed property sales to the Rhode Island general fund. Some lawmakers would like that to change.
Jeffrey Richman's insight:

Absolutely not!  These funds belong to the owners and if they can't find them, they need to try harder or work with firms that can.

Many of these people pay taxes, have Driver's Licenses, vote, pay insurance (of some kind).  If the government, in any copacity really wants to find someone, in many cases, they can.  They choose not to so that they can use the funds without recourse and eventually keep them.
