According to a recent search of Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar’s Unclaimed Property Website (ClaimItTexas.org), there are “…more than 25 million properties…about $4 billion in missing money waiting to be claimed” and it is “never too late to make a claim.”  This Comptroller is doing a bang up job making it easier than ever to find lost items and we decided to do the same.
 
Our two-tier process will begin with uncashed refund checks and will be followed by property tax refunds we have been unable to determine who to send the funds to.  State law requires the tax collector to determine who is paid a refund but when duplicate payment letters are mailed out, over half are never returned.  Without either payor making a claim, it falls on our shoulders to determine who the rightful owner actually is or to send or escheat the funds to the State Comptroller. Once funds are escheated to the State, it is much harder for an owner to claim the funds so the Galveston County Tax Office is going one step further with this webpage listing.
 
Phase One has rolled out with over 600 refunds totaling nearly $162,000 that have either been returned or remain uncashed.  Only the property address (or legal description) will be posted along with the year the refund was generated. 
 
Current and former owners of Galveston County or City of Friendswood and League City properties in either Galveston or Harris County should periodically search the listing (see below). If you own or owned one of these properties during the time period shown, send an email to Refunds@co.galveston.tx.us. Include your current contact information.
 
Proper identification and proof of ownership (i.e. copy of deed, deed of trust, will, utility bill, voter registration certificate, Texas drivers license or ID or other document the includes the address of the property for the year shown) is required for the refund to be reissued. Those without access to the internet may obtain a listing of the properties at any GCTO office along with an application form to complete and return to: 
 
GCTO UNCLAIMED REFUNDS
722 Moody
Galveston, Texas 77550    
 
Only written requests in the form of application or email with proper documents attached will be accepted.  The 2015 tax season is underway and responses will not be immediate.  Someone will contact you within a couple of weeks to confirm the status of your claim.
 
We truly look forward to clearing our books and paying YOU instead of you paying US!
 
 
Cheryl E. Johnson, Galveston County Tax Assessor Collector
