Unclaimed Monies - Outlawed Warrants

The County of Tulare Accounts Payable Division of the Auditor and Controller's Office is currently in possession of Unclaimed Monies belonging to individuals and organizations doing business with or receiving services from the County.  Unclaimed Monies consist of warrants/checks that remain uncashed for a period of more than six months, usually resulting from warrants/checks that are returned as undeliverable by the postal service.  Often the payee has moved and does not leave a forwarding address or the forwarding order has expired.  In addition, warrants/checks may remain uncased for any number of other reasons including lost or destroyed.  Then most common types of unclaimed monies include, but are not limited to, supplier payments for goods or services.
