Kit Carson County Give Back

The Treasurer’s and the Administration offices of Kit Carson County are trying to get the word out about unclaimed funds that the County is holding.  The County is trying to connect citizens and business with thousands of dollars in unclaimed property.  Often checks are not received or get laid aside and never get cashed, so we are attempting to get the funds to the rightful owners. 

To claim your outstanding funds, an affidavit must be signed by the owner of the funds, stating that if the original check is found, it will not be cashed.  If your name is on the Treasurer’s Office list, please bring the affidavit to the Treasurer’s office so that a new check can be issued in the same amount as the original check.  If you name is on the Commissioner’s list, it is the same process that will need to followed, except you would need to go to the Administration Office to have your check reissued. Please allow either office 24 hours to process the new check. 

If you have any questions you are urged to call the Treasurer’s office at 719-346-8434 ext 311 and talk to Pam Mills or call the Commissioner’s office at 719-346-8133 ext. 304 and talk to Paula Weeks.
