UPPO Seeks Texas H.B. 3598 Clarification

Earlier this year, the Texas legislature passed H.B. 3598, which the governor subsequently signed into law. Among other things, the legislation outlines requirements for combined reporting of unclaimed property for affiliated companies. The new law raises many questions for holders and service providers.


On Oct. 15, 2019, UPPO sent a letter to Texas Director of Unclaimed Property Joani Bishop and Assistant Director of Unclaimed Property Bryant Clayton, requesting clarification from the state regarding issues related to controlling interest, third-party vendors and combined reporting implementation. 


UPPO received a prompt response. Texas unclaimed property officials are currently drafting guidance regarding the new law and welcomed a call to discuss our questions. We look forward to our discussion, scheduled for Oct. 30, and will provide additional member updates when more information is available.
