With the milk flowing freely and some of the best cheese on the planet, the residents of Wisconsin are justifiably proud of their dairy industry, but there is more to the region that just great food and drink. If you live here, you know how wonderful the place can be, but wouldn’t it be nice if you had some extra cash to spend?
With prices rising and times uncertain, it has never been more important to find extra cash wherever and whenever you can, and the state of Wisconsin is doing its part to make your life easier more affordable. Like other states, the state of Wisconsin maintains a comprehensive database of unclaimed property, and some of it just might be yours. Here are the steps you can take to find out for sure.
1.Start your search for unclaimed property at the website the state of Wisconsin maintains for just his purpose. The URL of the website is revenue.wi.gov.
2.Click the Search button. The button is located roughly halfway down the page.
3.Enter your first name, last name and middle initial if you are doing a search for personal property. To conduct a search for commercial cash or property, simply enter the name of the business in the last name field.
4.Click the Search button to begin the query. The search will only take a few seconds.
5.Review the list of results carefully, checking for anything that may belong to you. If you are married you might want to search under both your maiden and your married name.
6.Complete a claim form for any property you think may belong to you. Check the website for documentation requirements to determine what kinds of proof you will need to substantiate your claim and prove your rightful ownership.
7.Check the website regularly to watch your claim as it moves through the process. It may take some time for the claims to be processed, so be patient.
8.Enjoy your found money.
There are many reasons why a particular piece of property would end up in the database maintained by the state of Wisconsin. A dormant bank account might be turned over when the bank is unable to reach its depositor by mail. A tax refund check could be put there when it goes uncashed, and the proceeds of an insurance policy could end up in the database when a particular beneficiary cannot be found.
The reasons unclaimed property accumulates vary, as do the type of assets and institutions holding it. But no matter what the reason or the asset, reuniting residents with their lost money and property is what Unclaimed Money Discovery is all about. We not only locate assets in every state, but we also search throughout your family tree to recover money lost long ago. Talk to an Asset Recovery Specialist to recover as much as possible for you and your family.
