The Clerk of the Courts and Controller in his official capacity as Clerk of the Courts and Clerk to the Board of County Commissioners has compiled a list of unclaimed monies for the Clerk’s Office, the Board of County Commissioners and the Tax Deed Funds.  Persons claiming any interest in such funds or any portion of those funds shall file their written claim with the Collier County Clerk of the Circuit Court.

Claimant shall make sufficient proof to the Clerk of the Circuit Court of ownership which can be receipts, billings or other information backing up the claim.  Claimant must also provide a valid driver’s license or valid government issued photo identification.  The affidavit for unclaimed monies (BOCC Affidavit or Clerks Affidavit) must be completed. 

If mailing the claim, the affidavit must be notarized and mailed together with a copy of the driver’s license or government issued photo identification and other claim documentation.  Businesses must submit their claim form on their business letterhead and the taxpayer identification number must be listed on the form. 

All monies pertaining to the Board of County Commissioners that remain unclaimed after a required dormancy period of one year will be remitted to the Florida Department of Financial Services, Bureau of Unclaimed Property in accordance with Florida Statutes Chapter 717, The Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act.  You may search unclaimed monies that have been remitted to the State at their website, www.fltreasurehunt.org

Monies paid on behalf of the Clerk of the Circuit Court remaining unclaimed prior to January 1 of the preceding year will be remitted to the State of Florida as revenue in the Fine and Forfeiture Fund and can no longer be claimed per Florida Statute Chapter 116.

Tax Deed Surplus funds are listed in a separate document and may also be claimed with proper documentation.  A document packet for claiming Tax Deed Surplus is provided in the related links.
