The auditor shall maintain a record of when a warrant is issued. The record shall include the warrant number, date, name of payee, amount, nature of claims, or services provided. (A warrant is a demand draft drawn on a government's treasury to pay its bills, which is a check.)
Every November 1, the county must remit all outstanding warrants for the previous 2 years to the Department of Revenue, Unclaimed Property. Until this time of remittance, the payees on the attached list are still outstanding with Jefferson County and can be claimed from the County.
Outstanding items for previous years have been remitted to the Department of Revenue. The Department of Revenue is the custodian for unclaimed property, and it administers an unclaimed property program to seek the rightful owners.
