Unclaimed Monies—General Collections

Deadline for Claims Submission was December 26, 2019. The Due Date has now passed.

Information about Unclaimed Monies—General Collections

Department of Tax and Collections collects for:

  • services provided by many of the County's departments
  • fees, fines, and victim restitution ordered by the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara.

The department annually processes approximately 178,600 payments, totaling revenue of $45 million.

The unclaimed monies for general collections come from a variety of sources, including but not limited to, overpayments, duplicate payments, adjustment of charges, and payments to victims who cannot be located. The monies remain unclaimed due to various reasons such as returned mail, uncashed checks, refusals of the funds, and lack of response from notifications.

In accordance with the Government Code section GC 50050, we publish the Unclaimed Monies for General Collections in the San Jose Post-Record for two successive weeks—first on November 1 and again on November 8, 2019.

What Happens to Monies that are Not Claimed?

All claims for monies from this publication must be submitted by December 26, 2019. After the deadline, unclaimed monies in the General Collections Trust Fund will be transferred to County Funds.
