Deadline to Request Unclaimed Funds

Unclaimed property transferred to the state includes property that might belong to state agencies or institutions of higher education. Money not claimed by May 31 will be deposited into unappropriated general revenue.

Tax Implications of the Family Leave Pool

The Texas Legislature established a state employee family leave pool to give eligible employees more flexibility to care for children during the first year following birth, adoption or foster placement, and to care for a seriously ill family member or themselves, including for pandemic-related illnesses or complications caused by a pandemic.

Agencies must determine the appropriate tax treatment for leave donated to this leave pool based on each agency’s implementation of the program.

See Tax Implications of the Family Leave Pool (FPP A.049).
