On September 1st, the Minnesota Department of Commerce, in partnership with Xerox (ACS), released an online holder reporting function to aid holders of unclaimed property in reporting their property to the Department. This piece will allow holders to track filings over time and allows for more efficient loading of reports by Unclaimed Property staff. Electronic filing is now available via UPExchange as well.
