: Online reporting is now an option for Illinois unclaimed property filers. After registering, holders can file reports with nothing to report (NTR) and reports with property. The process makes reporting completely paperless if you pay using ACH. For reports with property, holders will need to create a data file in the NAUPA standard for upload to our secure FTP site. The HRS Pro program is provided for creation of these files. To begin the online reporting process, click here.
ACH Transfer Instructions
: Holders may remit their payment via ACH transfer. To receive Illinois' ACH Transfer instructions, email your request to UP_Report@treasurer.state.il.us
or call (217)524-0023. The instructions will be faxed to you.
Voluntary Disclosure Agreement (VDA)
: As of June 2008, the Unclaimed Property Division has instituted a Voluntary Disclosure Agreement (VDA) program for unclaimed property holders who have compliance issues from prior periods which they would like to rectify. The VDA is designed to bring holders into compliance with the Illinois Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act. In exchange for voluntary compliance through an executed VDA the Treasurer's Office will agree to forgo the right to assess penalties and interest outlined in the Act.
To participate in the program a holder must:
Not be under examination by the Treasurer's Office or an agent of the Treasurer's Office.
Conduct a self audit and remit findings within six months of the execution of the agreement.
Be able to provide supporting documentation for any estimation techniques used.
Be able to accept the agreement without modification.
To initiate the VDA process, send a signed VDA agreement to the Treasurer's Unclaimed Property Division. Upon receipt, the agreement will be reviewed by the Treasurer's Office. For agreements that are accepted, a signed copy will be returned to the holder. A completed report filed on form UPD601 is due within six months from the date the Unclaimed Property Director signs the agreement.
