According to the State Comptroller's Department, 1 in 4 Texans has unclaimed money or property waiting for them through the state of Texas.  This may be the result of numerous reasons:  court deposits, over payment on bills, dividends, rebates on purchases, and many more.

In fact the average claim is more than $1,000!!  And the record payout was for over $4 million to a man in the Dallas area.

In fiscal 2010, Texas returned more than $163 million to its rightful owners.

Do you have some green waiting for you?  Just go to Claim It Texas and find out.  It's a free service and as weird as it may sound, the State of Texas is just trying to give you your money back.
