If you are an employer in Pennsylvania, this information may be helpful to you:

Employers in Pennsylvania are subject to the Disposition of Abandoned and Unclaimed Property Law. April 15th is the deadline to report and deliver unclaimed property to the Pennsylvania Treasury.

Unclaimed property is any property without a lawful owner, or whose owner cannot be identified or found, that has remained unclaimed for at least one year. Property may include both tangible and intangible property, including uncashed checks, accounts payable, credit balances, certain gift cards, bank accounts, and insurance proceeds. Any business or organization in possession of unclaimed property and who fails to report it may be subject to fines and other penalties, including 12 percent interest charged from the date the property was due.

Pennsylvania Treasury is offering a series of Webinars to help you learn how to ensure your business is compliant and to help make the process of reporting easier for you. Please visit patreasury.org to register for the Webinars.
