It is exciting for us at the Treasury Department to look back on the performance of our unclaimed property program this past year. 

In 2004, the Treasury was able to return nearly $12 million in unclaimed property to more than 15,000 rightful owners. In addition, we collected a record $36.8 million in unclaimed property from Louisiana businesses. In fact, we have broken our fiscal year-end records for unclaimed property collections and refunds for seven out of the past nine years. 

Part of the success of our collection efforts is due to an increase in our unclaimed property audits of businesses across the state. Another reason for our success has been the dedication and hard work of our unclaimed property employees.  
The Treasury has stepped up unclaimed property collections so much, in fact, that with roughly three months left in the fiscal year, the Treasury has collected $40 million in unclaimed property. This is the largest amount of money the state has ever collected in a single year.
