If real or tangible personal property of such decedent is located outside of this state and is subject to estate, inheritance, legacy, or succession taxes by any state or states, other than the state of Connecticut, or by the District of Columbia for which such federal credit is allowable, the amount of tax due under this section shall be reduced by the lesser of: (1) The amount of any such taxes paid to such other state or states or said district and allowed as a credit against the federal estate tax in effect as of January 1, 2001; or (2) an amount computed by multiplying such federal credit by a fraction, (A) the numerator of which is the value of that part of the decedent's gross estate over which such other state or states or said district have jurisdiction for estate tax purposes to the same extent to which this state would assert jurisdiction for estate tax purposes under this chapter with respect to the residents of such other state or states or said district, and (B) the denominator of which is the value of the decedent's gross estate. Property of a resident estate over which this state has jurisdiction for estate tax purposes includes real property situated in this state, tangible personal property having an actual situs in this state, and intangible personal property owned by the decedent, regardless of where it is located.

Property of a nonresident estate over which this state has jurisdiction for estate tax purposes includes real property situated in this state and tangible personal property having an actual situs in this state.

(a) Unclaimed funds held and owing by [a life insurance corporation] an insurance company shall be presumed abandoned if a person other than the insured or annuitant is entitled to the funds and no address of such person is known to the [corporation] company.

(b) Any sum payable on a traveler's check issued or sold in this state on which a business association is directly liable, which has been outstanding for more than [fifteen] ten years from the date of its issuance is presumed abandoned, unless the owner has within [fifteen] ten years corresponded in writing with the business association concerning it, or otherwise indicated an interest as evidenced by a memorandum on file with such business association.

(c) Any property payable or distributable in the course of a demutualization of an insurance company is presumed abandoned if the property is unclaimed and unpaid one year after the date the property became payable or distributable.

All property held for the owner by any court, public corporation, public authority or public officer of this state, or a political subdivision thereof, which has remained unclaimed by the owner for more than [five] three years is presumed abandoned, except that any claim granted pursuant to chapter 53 in an amount less than three thousand dollars which has remained unclaimed by the owner for more than one year from the date such claim was granted is presumed abandoned.

Sec. 91. Section 3-65a of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective July 1, 2003):

(a) Within [one year] one hundred eighty days before a presumption of abandonment is to take effect in respect to [any] property subject to section 87 or 88 of this act and within one year before a presumption of abandonment is to take effect in respect to all other property subject to this part, and if the owner's claim is not barred by law, the holder shall notify the owner thereof, by first class mail directed to the owner's last-known address, that evidence of interest must be indicated as required by this part or such property will be transferred to the Treasurer and will be subject to escheat to the state.

(b) Within ninety days after the close of the calendar year in which property is presumed abandoned, the holder shall pay or deliver such property to the Treasurer and file, on forms which the Treasurer shall provide, a report of unclaimed property. Each report shall be verified and shall include: (1) The name, if known, and last-known address, if any, of each person appearing to be the owner of such property; (2) in case of unclaimed funds of [life insurance corporations] an insurance company, the full name of the insured or annuitant and beneficiary and his or her last-known address appearing on the [life insurance corporation's] insurance company's records; (3) the nature and identifying number, if any, or description of the property and the amount appearing from the records to be due except that the holder shall report in the aggregate items having a value of less than fifty dollars; [or less; ] (4) the date when the property became payable, demandable or returnable and the date of the last transaction with the owner with respect to the property; (5) if the holder is a successor to other holders, or if [he] the holder has changed [his] the holder's name, all prior known names and addresses of each holder of the property; and (6) such other information as the Treasurer may require.

(c) Verification, if made by a partnership, shall be executed by a partner; if made by an unincorporated association or private corporation, by an officer; and if made by a public corporation, by its chief fiscal officer.

(d) The Treasurer shall keep a permanent record of all reports submitted to [him] the Treasurer.

(e) Except for claims paid under section 3-67a and except as provided in subsection [(d)] (e) of section 3-70a, as amended by this act, no owner shall be entitled to any interest, income or other increment which may accrue to property presumed abandoned from and after the date of payment or delivery to the Treasurer.

(f) The Treasurer may decline to receive any property the value of which is less than the cost of giving notice or holding sale, or [he] may postpone taking possession until a sufficient sum accumulates.

(g) The Treasurer, or any officer or agency designated by [him] the Treasurer, may examine any person on oath or affirmation, or the records of any person [, who he has reason to believe has knowledge of or has failed to report or transmit property presumed abandoned] or any agent of the person including, but not limited to, a dividend disbursement agent or transfer agent of a business association, banking organization or insurance company that is the holder of property presumed abandoned to determine whether the person or agent has complied with this part. The Treasurer may conduct the examination even if the person or agent believes the person or agent is not in possession of any property that must be paid, delivered or reported under this part. The Treasurer may bring an action in a court of appropriate jurisdiction to enforce the provisions of this part.

(h) Upon request of the holder, the Treasurer may approve the aggregate reporting on an estimated basis of two hundred or more items in each of one or more categories of unclaimed funds whenever it appears to [him] the Treasurer that each of the items in any such category has a value of more than ten dollars but less than fifty dollars and the cost of reporting such items would be disproportionate to the amounts involved. Any holder electing to so report any such category in the aggregate shall assume responsibility for any valid claim presented within twenty years after the year in which the items in such category are presumed abandoned.

(i) A record of the issuance of a check, draft or similar instrument is prima facie evidence of the obligation represented by the check, draft or similar instrument. In claiming property from a holder who is also the issuer, the Treasurer's burden of proof as to the existence and amount of the property and its abandonment is satisfied by showing issuance of the instrument and passage of the requisite period of abandonment. Defenses of payment, satisfaction, discharge and want of consideration are affirmative defenses that shall be established by the holder.

(j) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (b) of this section, the holder of personal property presumed abandoned pursuant to subdivision (5) of subsection (a) of section 3-57a, as amended by this act, shall sell such property and pay the proceeds arising from such sale, excluding any charges that may lawfully be withheld, to the Treasurer.
