Reporting of PA Unclaimed Funds Deadline – April 15th

Reporting Deadline – April 15th
Reports and remittance are due by April 15th of the year following the year the property first became subject to
custody and control of the Commonwealth under the Act, or the next business day if the 15th falls on a Saturday,
Sunday or holiday.
Failure to submit the report by April 15th may result in interest being charged at a rate of 12 percent per annum
and the imposition of penalties, if warranted, as authorized under Section 1301.24 of the Act. In addition,
Section 1301.24 allows Treasury to examine the records of any company that fails to report property.
Early Remittance
The Act provides that holders may, with the consent of the State Treasurer, report and deliver unclaimed
property before the expiration of the holding period. See Section 1301.13(d) of the Act. Forms for early
remittance are available on the Web site at:www.patreasury.org/Unclaimed Property.html or by calling
1-800-379-3999.
**Please note that the Treasury Department will not accept early remittance of securities.
Negative Reporting
If, after a thorough annual review of records, it is determined that you are not in possession of unclaimed
property, you have the option of filing a negative/compliance report. This report is helpful to Treasury in
determining annual compliance.
A negative report can be filed online at www.patreasury.org/UnclaimedProperty.html. Select the “Holder
Login for Negative Reporting” link on the left side of the page. Companies filing online do not need to submit a
hard copy report.
Holders choosing to file a hard copy report may do so by completing the AP1 Neg form and mailing it to:
Treasury Department
Bureau of Unclaimed Property
PO Box 1837
Harrisburg, PA 17105-1837
