WI Department of Revenue Announces New Matching Program
Effective immediately, the DOR will begin matching unclaimed property in Wisconsin against the agency's tax records. If there is a match between an individual and an unclaimed property owner, DOR will mail one of two different notices to the individual depending on the value of unclaimed property. Effective July 1, 2015, DOR will also offset the unclaimed property payment by the amount of taxes or debts owed.

Learn more about this program and see if you have unclaimed property waiting for you.
