In 2013 I claimed and received unclaimed property in the State of Colorado. This property is unclaimed wages from a company I used to work for in the mid 2000's. I received no documentation with this property regarding any withheld taxes (or anything else). I can find little or no guidance from the IRS site on how I might handle this.
My efforts to reach the company have resulted in no further information about the wages.
What is the appropriate way to handle this on my Federal return? As current year gross income?
Does anyone have any links, pointers, or guidance for handling these wages?
I earned these wages in a state other than that I currently live, might it be necessary to file for this income in the State of Colorado?
Thanks for any advice.
