On Monday, the city of San Diego announced that more than $ 840,000 could be returned to nearly 1,070 residents and business owners who have paid for city services or conducted business with the city over the past three years.

Individual refund amounts range from $ 1 to $ 77,500. As noted in the city, the most common types of unclaimed funds are returned checks for overpayment of taxes on business activities, overpaid utilities and other fees. Checks that remain undiscovered after six months become unclaimed money.

“We want San Diego to know that one of these checks could be theirs,” said Roma Nichols, acting as the disbursement manager at the city’s finance department. “We encourage people to check their name or company name on the city’s website a couple of times during the year.

“Searching the report is free, the process of requesting a refund is simple, and we want to return every dollar to its rightful owner,” Nichols said.

In 2021, the city returned about $ 600,800 to 75 recipients – only 42% of the unclaimed money. The average claim was $ 8,011.

Recipients of payments have one year after issuing the check to claim their money. For checks issued before April 1, 2021, the last day to file a claim is Monday, June 20. Unclaimed funds will be transferred to the city’s general fund on July 1, 2022. To view the report, visit sandiego.gov/finance/ unclaimed.

No search is charged for filing a report or filing a claim. To file a claim, print out and fill out the unsolicited form and send it to:

City of San Diego, Department of the Treasury

Processing claims for unclaimed money

str., 202 C – post office 7A

San Diego, CA 92101

Once the claim is verified, the check will be issued in three to four weeks, according to the city.

Questions about unsolicited money can be sent to DoF@sandiego.gov or 619-236-6310.
