San Diego County has $1.3 million in unclaimed refunds and they want the public to search the database to see who is owed money, officials said Thursday.
When the county can’t locate property taxpayers or others who may have previously owned property in the County of San Diego in the past five years, they add the refund to an “unclaimed monies list.”
Sometimes the refunds have been sent to the last known mailing address on file. Other times, checks return uncashed.
This year, the County Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office has 4,329 unclaimed accounts. The funds in those account total approximately $1.3 million, officials said.
