If you're thinking there's no way you have any money owed to you sitting in Louisiana's unclaimed property program, you might be surprised.

Last year a close friend of mine searched his name, never thinking he would come across unclaimed money owed to him. Sure enough, he had over $1,000 in unclaimed state income tax refunds!

It only takes a minute to search the database to check. Louisiana Treasurer John Schroder says checking often, at least once a year, is something all Louisianians should do as each year, more unclaimed money is sent to the state’s unclaimed property program.

Currently, there is over $5.6 million in unclaimed Louisiana tax refunds.

From KATC -

"Treasurer John Schroder said the funds were received from the Department of Revenue and are owed to nearly 22,000 residents and businesses around Louisiana."
