On Nov. 8-9, the Uniform Law Commission's (ULC) Drafting Committee to rewrite the 1995 Uniform Unclaimed Property Act met for a second time in Washington, D.C., to advance its consideration of legal, policy, and compliance issues that have to date generated the submission of more than 1,500 pages of commentary and proposed statutory language from a variety of stakeholders, Kendall L. Houghton, a partner with Alston & Bird in Washington, D.C., writes in this week’s issue of the Bloomberg BNA Weekly State Tax Report.
The ULC process is currently targeted to produce a 2016 Uniform Unclaimed Property Act that would accomplish the goals of modernization and increased uniformity.
Houghton’s article, which can be read in its entirety here, discusses the latest developments raised in the meeting.
