County Unclaimed Monies Refund List Might Have Your Name on It

Take a couple minutes to see if your name is listed on the San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office unclaimed monies refund list – it may be worth your while.

The County has more than $713,000 in unclaimed refunds for San Diego County residents who overpaid county departments on taxes, deposits, premiums, services or fees. The refunds range from $10 to nearly $37,000.

The only catch? You have until Dec. 17 to check that refund list or state law says that unclaimed money must go into the County’s general fund.

“With the holidays approaching, everyone could use a little extra money in their pocket,” said County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister. “The average refund is $386. If you are owed a refund, and can prove you are the rightful owner, we want to make sure you get your refund.”

The process is easy and can all be done online. The list contains 1,848 refunds. If you find your name, scroll to the bottom to find out how to claim it. You can email your claim to refunds@sdcounty.ca.gov or call 1-877-829-4732 for more information.

The County has refunded more than $500,000 to their owners in the last five years. If you’d like to know when new unclaimed money lists are posted, you can visit the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s website to sign up for emails.
