Department of Tax and Collections annually issues more than 500,000 property tax bills and collects over $6 billion. The unclaimed monies for property taxes come from a variety of sources including but not limited to reduced assessments (re-evaluation of assessed values), overpayments, and duplicate payments. The property tax refunds become unclaimed due to various reasons such as returned mail, uncashed checks, refusal of the funds, or lack of response from notifications.
In accordance with the Government Code section GC 50050, we publish the Unclaimed Property Tax Refunds in the San Jose Post-Record for two successive weeks—first on January 15, 2019 and again on January 22, 2019.
The published list of unclaimed property tax refunds are available to be searched by clicking on the link below.
