On Nov. 9, 2017, the Ohio Department of Commerce published amendments to the state’s unclaimed property administrative rules. In part, the proposed changes would:

  • Add a specific definition of “owner-generated activity.”
  • Clarify the definition of “services rendered, in the course of business.”
  • Add one new exception to the requirement that audits be selected randomly.
  • Expand audit closing meeting specifications to include acceptable meeting methods, appeal rights discussion and provision of appeal form.
  • Include provision for voluntary disclosure prior to exam selection.

UPPO’s Government Relations and Advocacy Committee is thoroughly reviewing the proposed amendments for possible comment by the state’s Dec. 18 deadline. A hearing on the amendments is scheduled for Dec. 19, 2017.
