Interest Charges for Late Payment or Delivery of Abandoned Property
If you are late delivering abandoned property, New York State can charge you late filing interest. Interest is 10% per year from the date payment or delivery was due to the date you make payment or delivery. Interest on securities is based on the closing price of the securities, as of the tenth day of the month in which delivery was due. Refer to Section 1412 of the statute.
