NSW residents have been urged « to reconnect with their money and get extra cash for Christmas » by looking for unclaimed spending money held by Revenue NSW.
Treasury Secretary Damien Tudehope said more than $ 461 million in unclaimed money was in Revenue NSW, compared with $ 17 million paid to claimants since December last year.
Revenue NSW contains more than one million unclaimed items from private companies, state trustees, local councils and government agencies that cannot be returned to the owner because their contact details are out of date and cannot be tracked.
Mr Tudehope said people could visit the Revenue NSW website and type their details into the search tool to see if they owed any cash.
