Who is required to report unclaimed property?
If your legal entity is a business association (corporation, partnership, etc.), governmental agency, or nonprofit you are probably required to file annual reports of unclaimed property.
Why do corporations have to report unclaimed property?
Unclaimed property laws were enacted to prevent holders of unclaimed property from taking citizens’ unclaimed property and recognizing it as business income. This law gives the state an opportunity to return money to its rightful owners and provides Indiana citizens with a single source, the Office of the Indiana Attorney General, for unclaimed property that has been reported by holders from Indiana and around the nation.

UNCLAIMED PROPERTY LAW:
As of July 1 st, 2013 Indiana Code has been amended. IC 32-34-1-26-(h) requires ALL reports to be submitted electronically via the IndianaUnclaimed upload.
Annual reporting deadline for all Holders is NOVEMBER 1 st. The reporting deadline for life insurance companies only is MAY 1 st.
Under Indiana law, almost every business organization (and government body) is required to report and remit unclaimed property to the Indiana Attorney General’s Unclaimed Property Division whenever the property owner cannot be found. Holders are businesses, organizations, and any other entity in possession of unclaimed property. Unclaimed assets are considered abandoned when the property has been inactive for one to fifteen (1-15) years (depending on property type), and attempts by the holder to contact the owner through the due diligence process have been unsuccessful. Businesses that fail to comply with the Unclaimed Property Act will be charged interest and are subject to additional penalties.
