Escheat Letter

Last Updated July 26, 2011

Certain tax offices can print escheat letters for refunds that have been paid out but not cashed.

Users must have the GLTAXLEDGE_FOUNDATION role and the user entitlements TAXLEDGE_REPORTS and GLRPTESCHEAT_LETTER granted in the Tax Collection System to run this report.

To print these letters:

  1. Open TaxLedge and log in.
  2. On TaxLedge’s Main Menu bar, select Reports, then select Escheat Letter. The Escheat Letter screen will be displayed.
  3. Select the correct Bank from the drop-down list.
  4. Select the correct Bank Account from the drop-down list.
  5. Select the correct Payment Type from the drop-down list, for ex., Overpayment Refund.
  6. Enter the number of copies needed in the Number of Copies field.
  7. In the Date of Letter field, enter the date to be printed on the letters.
  8. Enter the Last Print Date to consider for selecting the letters.
  9. (optional) Enter a Minimum Amount. Refunds smaller than this amount will not have letters printed.
  10. Click Print.
  11. If your tax office wants, the report can be tracked on the batch menu. A popup window will appear after you click Print that gives you the batch request sequence number. Contact ACT if you want this feature.
