Wisconsin Returns Nearly $500,000 in One Day
According to an article posted by NBC 15 in Madison, Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Treasury Department returned nearly $500,000 to citizens of the Badger State in one day. Half of that total amount was to just two owners, who were entitled to claim more than $100,000 a piece from the state. According to the article, this was the largest one-day return of funds in state history.
This stands as another reminder that, while the majority of property that gets escheated to the state are small-dollar amounts, some claims really are worth the trouble.
