    A friend of mine was blowing loads because he got a check for a $100, money of his that was being held by the state.

    So I did a search and actually found nearly a grand in one state (have already received the check) and have applied for money I found in a second state...

    Most states have their own government sites which can be found by searching "[your state] unclaimed property".

    For example, if you go to NJ's website and click on the "Search for my Money" button:

    http://www.unclaimedproperty.nj.gov/

    It redirects you to this site:

    http://www.missingmoney.com/

    If you come up with a lot of results as I did, you can narrow it down by going to your individual state.

    Not every state uses missingmoney, heres a list:

    Theres also a federal site here:

    Fuck all that.

    What I want is a website that has a list of all the property that has past due property tax so I can start to pay the dues.

    In 10 years of the owner doesn't show up its mine!!

    In some states its only 3 years and iirc, even if the owner is able to bring his taxes up to date, he has to return your funds as well.

    Its a good deal if you have the extra cash to pay 3 years of property taxes because theres no real down side, so long as the property is worth more than the taxes paid.

    Kinda sad though for the original home owner.

    That sounds kinda shady, I dont think it should cost anything.

    Although Pennsylvania apparently will reimburse you if you did use a service.

    The treasury department of each state should have it available for you to look up yourself and it's free. I have money there all the time. I get dividend checks from a company I used to work for, but I've moved a few times and they don't know where to mail the checks directly. A lot of these checks are really small, sometimes less than a dollar, and sometimes $20.00 or more. When I was getting them directly I rarely cashed the small ones. Now they go to the treasury's unclaimed money and I let them build up and when it's a good amount I claim it and then start the whole thing all over again.

    You just put in a bid at a tax sale and can foreclose if they don't pay in 2yrs.
