Office of the Maine State Treasurer
Holder Examination Process Commences
Maine’s Revised Uniform Unclaimed Property Act (RUUPA) enables the Treasurer to engage third parties to examine holders of unclaimed property to ensure compliance with Maine law. Some Maine-based holders will soon receive initial notice of compliance and reporting outreach from the State Treasurer or third parties. We thank all holders for their engagement and cooperation as we fulfill our mission to implement Maine law and reunite owners with their property.

As a reminder, OST employees are currently working remotely. Services such as unclaimed property and property tax relief payments will be delayed. Essential functions such as revenue sharing and cash management and debt are continuing. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We hope to return to work in Augusta as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, this state office cannot answer questions about receiving Federal Coronavirus Tax Relief and Economic Impact Payments from the Internal Revenue Service in Washington, DC. Please refer to:
