ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- One of the most important yet unappreciated jobs in a company falls to the individual who is responsible for filing the annual unclaimed property reports. As state deficits rise and many budgets are in the red, state Treasurers and Unclaimed Property Administrators increase enforcement to ensure continual influx of money into the state coffers. Unclaimed wages is one of the foundations of unclaimed property reporting. Although it is one of the most reported and most "obvious" property types, the legislation and other requirements surrounding unclaimed wages makes it perhaps one of the most fascinating and frustrating unclaimed property types. A new webinar from BNA on September 29, 2011, Unclaimed Property and the Reporting of Unclaimed Wages (http://www.bna.com/unclaimed-wages-16024/), offered by a leading expert on unclaimed property compliance, will explore the current landscape in unclaimed property reporting and enforcement.
In 90 minutes, Marlys A. Bergstrom, Attorney, Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP with 15 years of unclaimed property experience will discuss the following:
- What's UP in Unclaimed Property
- What are and are not uncashed wage checks for purposes of unclaimed property reporting? Looking at the data before reporting the data.
- The "Triple D" (the Dreaded Due Diligence Letter)
- Completing the Form and Remitting the $$$$
- State Potpourri
Attendees to this webinar will also receive 1.0 CPE or 1.5 APA RCH credits.
