One Week Left to Claim $380K in County Refunds


Get your money before it’s gone. There’s only one week left to claim part of $380,000 in unclaimed money before it is turned over to the County, San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister announced today. 

Visit the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s (TTC) newly redesigned website to see if you are owed one of the 1,503 refunds left by clicking here. The refunds are broken up into multiple categories, all of which are under the "Related Links" section of this page. Each list has claim instructions below it.

“We call our peak tax collection times in December and April our ‘two seasons of giving,’ but now, we’re in our season of giving back,” said McAllister. “The deadline to claim this money is September 7, so I encourage everyone to check the lists.”

In July, McAllister announced he had $441,000 in refunds to return. About $61,000 has already been claimed, leaving $380,000 still available.

“Only 172 people have filed claims for this money, but we want every penny to go to its rightful owner,” said McAllister. “Tell your friends to check the list; spread the word so we can return this money.”

All claims can be emailed to, or claimants can call toll free at (877) 829-4732 for assistance.

Current state law says countywide money that is unclaimed for three years and property tax refunds that are unclaimed for four years must be turned over to the County’s general fund.

The smallest refund available is $10, and the largest refund is $22,720, owed to IME Holdings by the County’s Planning and Development Services.
