-A A +A



Taylor County residents came to the Taylor County Courthouse on Friday, June 1, in droves to see if they are the owners of any of the $575,000 in unclaimed state assets in Taylor County.

The county is participating in Kentucky State Treasurer Todd Hollenbach's unclaimed property Treasure Finders program.

According to www.kytreasury.com, the program began as a way to help residents find their unclaimed property, including financial assets such as abandoned savings and checking accounts, non-cashed checks and travelers checks turned over to the state after a period of time.

Local officials and volunteers spent Friday, June 1, calling those on a large list of names who have unclaimed assets.
