Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) What Is a Related Transaction? What About Suspicious Transactions? When, Where, and What To File Examples Penalties How To Get Tax HelpLow Income Taxpayer Clinics (LITCs). My pay Why Report These Payments? Drug dealers and smugglers often use large cash payments to “launder” money from illegal activities. My pay Laundering means converting “dirty” or illegally-gained money to “clean” money. My pay The government can often trace this laundered money through the payments you report. My pay Laws passed by Congress require you to report these payments. My pay Your compliance with these laws provides valuable information that can stop those who evade taxes and those who profit from the drug trade and other criminal activities. My pay The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 increased the scope of these laws to help trace funds used for terrorism. My pay Who Must File Form 8300? Generally, any person in a trade or business who receives more than $10,000 in cash in a single transaction or in related transactions must file Form 8300. My pay For example, you may have to file Form 8300 if you are a dealer in jewelry, furniture, boats, aircraft, or automobiles; a pawnbroker; an attorney; a real estate broker; an insurance company; or a travel agency. My pay Special rules for clerks of federal or state courts are discussed later under Bail received by court clerks. My pay However, you do not have to file Form 8300 if the transaction is not related to your trade or business. My pay For example, if you own a jewelry store and sell your personal automobile for more than $10,000 in cash, you would not submit a Form 8300 for that transaction. My pay Transaction defined. My pay A “transaction” occurs when: Goods, services, or property are sold; Property is rented; Cash is exchanged for other cash; A contribution is made to a trust or escrow account; A loan is made or repaid; or Cash is converted to a negotiable instrument, such as a check or a bond. My pay Person defined. My pay A “person” includes an individual, a company, a corporation, a partnership, an association, a trust, or an estate. My pay Exempt organizations, including employee plans, are also “persons. My pay ” However, exempt organizations do not have to file Form 8300 for a more-than-$10,000 charitable cash contribution they receive since it is not received in the course of a trade or business. My pay Foreign transactions. My pay You do not have to file Form 8300 if the entire transaction (including the receipt of cash) takes place outside of: The 50 states, The District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, or A possession or territory of the United States. My pay However, you must file Form 8300 if any part of the transaction (including the receipt of cash) occurs in Puerto Rico or a possession or territory of the United States and you are subject to the Internal Revenue Code. My pay Bail received by court clerks. My pay Any clerk of a federal or state court who receives more than $10,000 in cash as bail for an individual charged with any of the following criminal offenses must file Form 8300: Any federal offense involving a controlled substance, Racketeering, Money laundering, and Any state offense substantially similar to (1), (2), or (3) above. My pay For more information about the rules that apply to court clerks, see Section 1. My pay 6050I-2 of the Income Tax Regulations. My pay What Payments Must Be Reported? You must file Form 8300 to report cash paid to you if it is: Over $10,000, Received as: One lump sum of over $10,000, Installment payments that cause the total cash received within 1 year of the initial payment to total more than $10,000, or Other previously unreportable payments that cause the total cash received within a 12-month period to total more than $10,000, Received in the course of your trade or business, Received from the same buyer (or agent), and Received in a single transaction or in related transactions (defined later). My pay What Is Cash? Cash is: The coins and currency of the United States (and any other country), and A cashier's check, bank draft, traveler's check, or money order you receive, if it has a face amount of $10,000 or less and you receive it in: A designated reporting transaction (defined later), or Any transaction in which you know the payer is trying to avoid the reporting of the transaction on Form 8300. My pay Cash may include a cashier's check even if it is called a “treasurer's check” or “bank check. My pay ” Cash does not include a check drawn on an individual's personal account. My pay A cashier's check, bank draft, traveler's check, or money order with a face amount of more than $10,000 is not treated as cash. My pay These items are not defined as cash and you do not have to file Form 8300 when you receive them because, if they were bought with currency, the bank or other financial institution that issued them must file a report on FinCEN Form 104. My pay Example 1. My pay You are a coin dealer. My pay Bob Green buys gold coins from you for $13,200. My pay He pays for them with $6,200 in U. My pay S. My pay currency and a cashier's check having a face amount of $7,000. My pay The cashier's check is treated as cash. My pay You have received more than $10,000 cash and must file Form 8300 for this transaction. My pay Example 2. My pay You are a retail jeweler. My pay Mary North buys an item of jewelry from you for $12,000. My pay She pays for it with a personal check payable to you in the amount of $9,600 and traveler's checks totaling $2,400. My pay Because the personal check is not treated as cash, you have not received more than $10,000 cash in the transaction. My pay You do not have to file Form 8300. My pay Example 3. My pay You are a boat dealer. My pay Emily Jones buys a boat from you for $16,500. My pay She pays for it with a cashier's check payable to you in the amount of $16,500. My pay The cashier's check is not treated as cash because its face amount is more than $10,000. My pay You do not have to file Form 8300 for this transaction. My pay Designated Reporting Transaction A designated reporting transaction is the retail sale of any of the following: A consumer durable, such as an automobile or boat. My pay A consumer durable is property, other than land or buildings, that: Is suitable for personal use, Can reasonably be expected to last at least 1 year under ordinary use, Has a sales price of more than $10,000, and Can be seen or touched (tangible property). My pay For example, a $20,000 car is a consumer durable, but a $20,000 dump truck or factory machine is not. My pay The car is a consumer durable even if you sell it to a buyer who will use it in a business. My pay A collectible (for example, a work of art, rug, antique, metal, gem, stamp, or coin). My pay Travel or entertainment, if the total sales price of all items sold for the same trip or entertainment event in one transaction (or related transactions) is more than $10,000. My pay To figure the total sales price of all items sold for a trip or entertainment event, you include the sales price of items such as airfare, hotel rooms, and admission tickets. My pay Example. My pay You are a travel agent. My pay Ed Johnson asks you to charter a passenger airplane to take a group to a sports event in another city. My pay He also asks you to book hotel rooms and admission tickets for the group. My pay In payment, he gives you two money orders, each for $6,000. My pay You have received more than $10,000 cash in this designated reporting transaction. My pay You must file Form 8300. My pay Retail sale. My pay The term “retail sale” means any sale made in the course of a trade or business that consists mainly of making sales to ultimate consumers. My pay Thus, if your business consists mainly of making sales to ultimate consumers, all sales you make in the course of that business are retail sales. My pay This includes any sales of items that will be resold. My pay Broker or intermediary. My pay A designated reporting transaction includes the retail sale of items (1), (2), or (3) of the preceding list, even if the funds are received by a broker or other intermediary, rather than directly by the seller. My pay Exceptions to Definition of Cash A cashier's check, bank draft, traveler's check, or money order you received in a designated reporting transaction is not treated as cash if one of the following exceptions applies. My pay Exception for certain bank loans. My pay A cashier's check, bank draft, traveler's check, or money order is not treated as cash if it is the proceeds from a bank loan. My pay As proof that it is from a bank loan, you may rely on a copy of the loan document, a written statement or lien instruction from the bank, or similar proof. My pay Example. My pay You are a car dealer. My pay Mandy White buys a new car from you for $11,500. My pay She pays you with $2,000 of U. My pay S. My pay currency and a cashier's check for $9,500 payable to you and her. My pay You can tell that the cashier's check is the proceeds of a bank loan because it includes instructions to you to have a lien put on the car as security for the loan. My pay For this reason, the cashier's check is not treated as cash. My pay You do not have to file Form 8300 for the transaction. My pay Exception for certain installment sales. My pay A cashier's check, bank draft, traveler's check, or money order is not treated as cash if it is received in payment on a promissory note or an installment sales contract (including a lease that is considered a sale for federal tax purposes). My pay However, this exception applies only if: You use similar notes or contracts in other sales to ultimate consumers in the ordinary course of your trade or business, and The total payments for the sale that you receive on or before the 60th day after the sale are 50% or less of the purchase price. My pay Exception for certain down payment plans. My pay A cashier's check, bank draft, traveler's check, or money order is not treated as cash if you received it in payment for a consumer durable or collectible, and all three of the following statements are true. My pay You receive it under a payment plan requiring: One or more down payments, and Payment of the rest of the purchase price by the date of sale. My pay You receive it more than 60 days before the date of sale. My pay You use payment plans with the same or substantially similar terms when selling to ultimate consumers in the ordinary course of your trade or business. My pay Exception for travel and entertainment. My pay A cashier's check, bank draft, traveler's check, or money order received for travel or entertainment is not treated as cash if all three of the following statements are true. My pay You receive it under a payment plan requiring: One or more down payments, and Payment of the rest of the purchase price by the earliest date that any travel or entertainment item (such as airfare) is furnished for the trip or entertainment event. My pay You receive it more than 60 days before the date on which the final payment is due. My pay You use payment plans with the same or substantially similar terms when selling to ultimate consumers in the ordinary course of your trade or business. My pay Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) You must furnish the correct TIN of the person or persons from whom you receive the cash. My pay If the transaction is conducted on the behalf of another person or persons, you must furnish the TIN of that person or persons. My pay If you do not know a person's TIN, you have to ask for it. My pay You may be subject to penalties for an incorrect or missing TIN. My pay There are three types of TINs. My pay The TIN for an individual, including a sole proprietor, is the individual's social security number (SSN). My pay The TIN for a nonresident alien individual who needs a TIN but is not eligible to get an SSN is an IRS individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). My pay An ITIN has nine digits, similar to an SSN. My pay The TIN for other persons, including corporations, partnerships, and estates, is the employer identification number (EIN). My pay Exception. My pay You are not required to provide the TIN of a person who is a nonresident alien individual or a foreign organization if that person or foreign organization: Does not have income effectively connected with the conduct of a U. My pay S. My pay trade or business; Does not have an office or place of business, or a fiscal or paying agent in the United States; Does not file a federal tax return; Does not furnish a withholding certificate described in §1. My pay 1441-1(e)(2) or (3) or 1. My pay 1441-5(c)(2)(iv) or (3)(iii) to the extent required under 1. My pay 1441-1(e)(4)(vii); Does not have to furnish a TIN on any return, statement, or other document as required by the income tax regulations under section 897 or 1445; or In the case of a nonresident alien individual, the individual has not chosen to file a joint federal income tax return with a spouse who is a U. My pay S. My pay citizen or resident. My pay What Is a Related Transaction? Any transactions between a buyer (or an agent of the buyer) and a seller that occur within a 24-hour period are related transactions. My pay If you receive over $10,000 in cash during two or more transactions with one buyer in a 24-hour period, you must treat the transactions as one transaction and report the payments on Form 8300. My pay For example, if you sell two products for $6,000 each to the same customer in 1 day and the customer pays you in cash, these are related transactions. My pay Because they total $12,000 (more than $10,000), you must file Form 8300. My pay More than 24 hours between transactions. My pay Transactions are related even if they are more than 24 hours apart if you know, or have reason to know, that each is one of a series of connected transactions. My pay For example, you are a travel agent. My pay A client pays you $8,000 in cash for a trip. My pay Two days later, the same client pays you $3,000 more in cash to include another person on the trip. My pay These are related transactions, and you must file Form 8300 to report them. My pay What About Suspicious Transactions? If you receive $10,000 or less in cash, you may voluntarily file Form 8300 if the transaction appears to be suspicious. My pay A transaction is suspicious if it appears that a person is trying to cause you not to file Form 8300 or is trying to cause you to file a false or incomplete Form 8300, or if there is a sign of possible illegal activity. My pay If you are suspicious, you are encouraged to call the local IRS Criminal Investigation Division as soon as possible. My pay Or, you can call the FinCEN Financial Institution Hotline toll free at 1-866-556-3974. My pay When, Where, and What To File The amount you receive and when you receive it determine when you must file. My pay Generally, you must file Form 8300 within 15 days after receiving a payment. My pay If the Form 8300 due date (the 15th or last day you can timely file the form) falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, it is delayed until the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. My pay More than one payment. My pay In some transactions, the buyer may arrange to pay you in cash installment payments. My pay If the first payment is more than $10,000, you must file Form 8300 within 15 days. My pay If the first payment is not more than $10,000, you must add the first payment and any later payments made within 1 year of the first payment. My pay When the total cash payments are more than $10,000, you must file Form 8300 within 15 days. My pay After you file Form 8300, you must start a new count of cash payments received from that buyer. My pay If you receive more than $10,000 in additional cash payments from that buyer within a 12-month period, you must file another Form 8300. My pay You must file the form within 15 days of the payment that causes the additional payments to total more than $10,000. My pay If you are already required to file Form 8300 and you receive additional payments within the 15 days before you must file, you can report all the payments on one form. My pay Example. My pay On January 10, you receive a cash payment of $11,000. My pay You receive additional cash payments on the same transaction of $4,000 on February 15, $5,000 on March 20, and $6,000 on May 12. My pay By January 25, you must file a Form 8300 for the $11,000 payment. My pay By May 27, you must file an additional Form 8300 for the additional payments that total $15,000. My pay Amending a Report? If you are amending a report, check box 1a at the top of Form 8300. My pay Complete the form in its entirety (Parts I-IV) and include the amended information. My pay Do not attach a copy of the original report. My pay Where to file. My pay Mail the form to the address given in the Form 8300 instructions. My pay Required statement to buyer. My pay You must give a written or electronic statement to each person named on any Form 8300 you must file. My pay You can give the statement electronically only if the recipient agrees to receive it in that format. My pay The statement must show the name and address of your business, the name and phone number of a contact person, and the total amount of reportable cash you received from the person during the year. My pay It must state that you are also reporting this information to the IRS. My pay You must send this statement to the buyer by January 31 of the year after the year in which you received the cash that caused you to file the form. My pay You must keep a copy of every Form 8300 you file for 5 years. My pay Examples Example 1. My pay Pat Brown is the sales manager for Small Town Cars. My pay On January 6, 2009, Jane Smith buys a new car from Pat and pays $18,000 in cash. My pay Pat asks for identification from Jane to get the necessary information to complete Form 8300. My pay A filled-in form is shown in this publication. My pay Pat must mail the form to the address shown in the form's instructions by January 21, 2009. My pay He must also send a statement to Jane by January 31, 2010. My pay Example 2. My pay Using the same facts given in Example 1, suppose Jane had arranged to make cash payments of $6,000 each on January 6, February 6, and March 6. My pay Pat would have to file a Form 8300 by February 26 (17 days after receiving total cash payments within 1 year over $10,000 because February 21, 2009, is a Saturday). My pay Pat would not have to report the remaining $6,000 cash payment because it is not more than $10,000. My pay However, he could report it if he felt it was a suspicious transaction. My pay Penalties There are civil penalties for failure to: File a correct Form 8300 by the date it is due, and Provide the required statement to those named in the Form 8300. My pay If you intentionally disregard the requirement to file a correct Form 8300 by the date it is due, the penalty is the greater of: $25,000, or The amount of cash you received and were required to report (up to $100,000). My pay There are criminal penalties for: Willful failure to file Form 8300, Willfully filing a false or fraudulent Form 8300, Stopping or trying to stop Form 8300 from being filed, and Setting up, helping to set up, or trying to set up a transaction in a way that would make it seem unnecessary to file Form 8300. My pay If you willfully fail to file Form 8300, you can be fined up to $250,000 for individuals ($500,000 for corporations) or sentenced to up to 5 years in prison, or both. My pay These dollar amounts are based on Section 3571 of Title 18 of the U. My pay S. My pay Code. My pay The penalties for failure to file may also apply to any person (including a payer) who attempts to interfere with or prevent the seller (or business) from filing a correct Form 8300. My pay This includes any attempt to structure the transaction in a way that would make it seem unnecessary to file Form 8300. My pay Structuring means breaking up a large cash transaction into small cash transactions.
