It is my understanding that banks are required to provide notice to the IRS of substantial deposits.

Does anyone know what that amount might be?
Does it apply to people or just accounts? In other words, same person but multiple accounts an issue?
Does it apply to single deposits, multiple deposits, or deposits within a certain time frame?

I won't get into details, but it's a large sum that is ultimately not in my possession but for a few weeks.

Anything 10,000 and over in cash at any one time gets reported to the Feds. 9999.99 and less does not

It is some what murky––-any deposit of 10K OR a series of deposits going over that amount.

If you got the money legally just deposit it. Trying to get around it raises more flags than say a lump sum from a bonus or a settlement. It will also look suspicious to other folks like say a jury.

JMHO YMMV
Link Posted: 2/16/2010 8:01:40 PM EDT
Structuring a bunch of smaller deposits to go under the 10k wire will also get you caught. If you're asking these kinds of questions on the internet you should probably think long and hard about whatever you're involved in.

YOu fail. The banks also report series of deposits that are deemed suspicious, even if each deposit is below the limit.
Link Posted: 2/16/2010 8:03:03 PM EDT
If the funds are just going to be in your possession for a few weeks I wouldn't bank it.

Just get a $20 fireproof safe and hide it in your basement.

and possibility they can report even ONE single transaction below 10,000 if deemed suspicious.

A safety deposit box is your best bet.

You're not making interest on your $$$ anyway.

Or go w/gold and put that in the safety deposit box.

In the old days?

Any Cash transaction gets reported somehow?
Since 9/11, every transaction is suspect, and the Patriot Act solidified it.

Yep, and they have software that sits and analyzes this stuff all day long looking for someone who is structuring deposits.

The *IRS* doesn't notice bank deposits. They can gain access to bank records, if they choose.

Most of the other statements people are making in this thread have nothing to do with the IRS.

WINNER WINNER.

These suspicious activities get reported to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), not the IRS.

Not since 9/11. Now they monitor EVERYTHING. Unexplained cash movements of $1,000 - $2,000 was how Eliot Spitzer got busted for hookers.
Link Posted: 2/16/2010 8:22:16 PM EDT
Might I recommend asking your bank teller what amount you can deposit before he or she has to report it. Oh wait, that will trigger them having to file a report for asking said question.

Don't get busted for structuring, from what I understand that can get you in way more trouble than just depositing everything at once.
Link Posted: 2/16/2010 8:27:17 PM EDT
Just keep your drug money in cash to save the trouble. Most dealers don't take debit cards or check... anymore.

And the apperance of structuring is illegal. You don't have to actually be doing it. Just appearing to do so can land you in prison.z

The official number is 10k, however any bank that suspects you of attempting to hide money from the IRS is obligated to report it regardless of the amount.

Does it apply to people or just accounts? In other words, same person but multiple accounts an issue?
Does it apply to single deposits, multiple deposits, or deposits within a certain time frame?

Following the above 2 questions through is a federal felony, 'Structuring'.

See Eliot Spitzer.

You are asking for advice on how to commit a crime (hide money from the IRS), which is a violation of the ARFCOM CoC

Open a few accounts in banks all over town, a few as DBA's or LLC's (you can incorporate in DE I think really cheaply). Deposit said monies into various accounts in amounts of less than $800. Write checks to yourself from the DBA's, LLC's, and yourself and start running them around town until you eventually get it transfered into one or two accounts in different banks. Make it look like you write checks to the 'businesses' and they write you checks. All the while you are depositing non-sequential amounts. Get some business-looking deposit slips too. Do this 3 times a week in different banks, using a different pattern.

There you go, money-laundering 101. And I just came up with that, no book learning or criminal experience.




Now, what do you need this info for? (and now I wait for the people who tell me that wouldn't work...)

Two subpoenas and I have your whole deposit history. An ex parte order and I have all your tax records. Your State gives me your business info with a phone call, maybe a letter. The U.S. Attorney's office gives me a seizure warrant for all of your accounts and any tangible assets you've purchased since the creation of the accounts, house, cars, toys, whatever. Now the onus is on you to prove a legitimate source of the funds and proceeds. Most people can't. Forfeiture proceedings are really short, and the auctions happen really fast. Now you're a homeless federal felon with no 2A rights. I don't recommend that anyone take your banking advice.

Anytime I withdraw or deposit more than 10k, Integra Bank checks a folder maintained behind the counter to insure they have a up to date photo ID of me. Not sure if they report it or not but it makes me feel dirty everytime they drag it out and give me the once over.

I don't see how thats possible. There is so many legitimate transactions of $ 1000 out there. Over there 10,000 is one thing, over 1,000 is another. I wonder if there was more to his story. Maybe he got extra monitoring due to political status.

post patrioit act "suspisious activity" is all it takes, BUT if you deposit say 1500 every 1st and 15th you are ok. OR if oyu do it every friday you are ok. BUT if you have huge sums of cash convert them to metals(silver and gold) and you have an asset that will be VERY hard to trace, very hard to tax as a result AND NO paper trail other than every other week you go to the assayers place and buy an ounce of gold and 50 ounces of silver or more. . jjust dont throw money around all at once, little at a time.

Postal money orders - you can get them up to $1k each.

They don't check ID when you buy them.

You can use them to pay bills or cash them back in at the post office.

Alright...looks like I'll just deposit the whole amount. Here's the deal. I'm collecting down payments and final payments for an overseas workshop/trip for my students. All the checks have been made out to me. Many of our expenses, such as airfare will have receipts, but many others will not. Thus, it makes it very difficult to show that I am not earning a profit on this trip.

I don't think the OP realized he might be breaking the law by structuring. It seems to me that's why he asked the question; he wanted to avoid breaking the law.

There are no "rules" on this anymore. If there were, you could get around them.

"Structuring" to hide money (as someone pointed out) is _illegal_ and will get you in boucoup trouble. Just deposit it and fill out the fucking sheet already.

Or keep it in cash. Better yet, get a safe deposit box for your "vintage teapot" and forget to take the cash out of the teapot.

Also note, for almost 15 years, bankers have been learning how to troll their own records to find this stuff. They get rewarded for it, they take classes for spotting how to do it (I did the IT work on the Michigan Bankers Association online class on the subject in 1998.), if you need to move a lot of money in a legit way, use a bank a legit way.

If you are just being a paranoid douche, then keep it as cash. The IRS is the LEAST of your worries, you got the DOJ, DEA and other letter agencies with more teeth first in line anyway.
