Drug dealers and smugglers often use large cash payments to “launder” money from illegal activities. 2012 ez tax forms Laundering means converting “dirty” or illegally-gained money to “clean” money. 2012 ez tax forms The government can often trace this laundered money through the payments you report. 2012 ez tax forms Laws passed by Congress require you to report these payments. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 increased the scope of these laws to help trace funds used for terrorism. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Special rules for clerks of federal or state courts are discussed later under Bail received by court clerks. 2012 ez tax forms However, you do not have to file Form 8300 if the transaction is not related to your trade or business. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Transaction defined. 2012 ez tax forms    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. 2012 ez tax forms Person defined. 2012 ez tax forms   A “person” includes an individual, a company, a corporation, a partnership, an association, a trust, or an estate. 2012 ez tax forms   Exempt organizations, including employee plans, are also “persons. 2012 ez tax forms ” 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. 2012 ez tax forms Foreign transactions. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Bail received by court clerks. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms For more information about the rules that apply to court clerks, see Section 1. 2012 ez tax forms 6050I-2 of the Income Tax Regulations. 2012 ez tax forms 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). 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Cash may include a cashier's check even if it is called a “treasurer's check” or “bank check. 2012 ez tax forms ” Cash does not include a check drawn on an individual's personal account. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Example 1. 2012 ez tax forms You are a coin dealer. 2012 ez tax forms Bob Green buys gold coins from you for $13,200. 2012 ez tax forms He pays for them with $6,200 in U. 2012 ez tax forms S. 2012 ez tax forms currency and a cashier's check having a face amount of $7,000. 2012 ez tax forms The cashier's check is treated as cash. 2012 ez tax forms You have received more than $10,000 cash and must file Form 8300 for this transaction. 2012 ez tax forms Example 2. 2012 ez tax forms You are a retail jeweler. 2012 ez tax forms Mary North buys an item of jewelry from you for $12,000. 2012 ez tax forms She pays for it with a personal check payable to you in the amount of $9,600 and traveler's checks totaling $2,400. 2012 ez tax forms Because the personal check is not treated as cash, you have not received more than $10,000 cash in the transaction. 2012 ez tax forms You do not have to file Form 8300. 2012 ez tax forms Example 3. 2012 ez tax forms You are a boat dealer. 2012 ez tax forms Emily Jones buys a boat from you for $16,500. 2012 ez tax forms She pays for it with a cashier's check payable to you in the amount of $16,500. 2012 ez tax forms The cashier's check is not treated as cash because its face amount is more than $10,000. 2012 ez tax forms You do not have to file Form 8300 for this transaction. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 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). 2012 ez tax forms For example, a $20,000 car is a consumer durable, but a $20,000 dump truck or factory machine is not. 2012 ez tax forms The car is a consumer durable even if you sell it to a buyer who will use it in a business. 2012 ez tax forms A collectible (for example, a work of art, rug, antique, metal, gem, stamp, or coin). 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Example. 2012 ez tax forms You are a travel agent. 2012 ez tax forms Ed Johnson asks you to charter a passenger airplane to take a group to a sports event in another city. 2012 ez tax forms He also asks you to book hotel rooms and admission tickets for the group. 2012 ez tax forms In payment, he gives you two money orders, each for $6,000. 2012 ez tax forms You have received more than $10,000 cash in this designated reporting transaction. 2012 ez tax forms You must file Form 8300. 2012 ez tax forms Retail sale. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms This includes any sales of items that will be resold. 2012 ez tax forms Broker or intermediary. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Exception for certain bank loans. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Example. 2012 ez tax forms You are a car dealer. 2012 ez tax forms Mandy White buys a new car from you for $11,500. 2012 ez tax forms She pays you with $2,000 of U. 2012 ez tax forms S. 2012 ez tax forms currency and a cashier's check for $9,500 payable to you and her. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms For this reason, the cashier's check is not treated as cash. 2012 ez tax forms You do not have to file Form 8300 for the transaction. 2012 ez tax forms Exception for certain installment sales. 2012 ez tax forms   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). 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Exception for certain down payment plans. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms You receive it more than 60 days before the date of sale. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Exception for travel and entertainment. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms You receive it more than 60 days before the date on which the final payment is due. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) You must furnish the correct TIN of the person or persons from whom you receive the cash. 2012 ez tax forms If the transaction is conducted on the behalf of another person or persons, you must furnish the TIN of that person or persons. 2012 ez tax forms If you do not know a person's TIN, you have to ask for it. 2012 ez tax forms You may be subject to penalties for an incorrect or missing TIN. 2012 ez tax forms There are three types of TINs. 2012 ez tax forms The TIN for an individual, including a sole proprietor, is the individual's social security number (SSN). 2012 ez tax forms 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). 2012 ez tax forms An ITIN has nine digits, similar to an SSN. 2012 ez tax forms The TIN for other persons, including corporations, partnerships, and estates, is the employer identification number (EIN). 2012 ez tax forms Exception. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms S. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 1441-1(e)(2) or (3) or 1. 2012 ez tax forms 1441-5(c)(2)(iv) or (3)(iii) to the extent required under 1. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms S. 2012 ez tax forms citizen or resident. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms Because they total $12,000 (more than $10,000), you must file Form 8300. 2012 ez tax forms More than 24 hours between transactions. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms   For example, you are a travel agent. 2012 ez tax forms A client pays you $8,000 in cash for a trip. 2012 ez tax forms Two days later, the same client pays you $3,000 more in cash to include another person on the trip. 2012 ez tax forms These are related transactions, and you must file Form 8300 to report them. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms If you are suspicious, you are encouraged to call the local IRS Criminal Investigation Division as soon as possible. 2012 ez tax forms Or, you can call the FinCEN Financial Institution Hotline toll free at 1-866-556-3974. 2012 ez tax forms When, Where, and What To File The amount you receive and when you receive it determine when you must file. 2012 ez tax forms Generally, you must file Form 8300 within 15 days after receiving a payment. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms More than one payment. 2012 ez tax forms   In some transactions, the buyer may arrange to pay you in cash installment payments. 2012 ez tax forms If the first payment is more than $10,000, you must file Form 8300 within 15 days. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms When the total cash payments are more than $10,000, you must file Form 8300 within 15 days. 2012 ez tax forms   After you file Form 8300, you must start a new count of cash payments received from that buyer. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms You must file the form within 15 days of the payment that causes the additional payments to total more than $10,000. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms Example. 2012 ez tax forms On January 10, you receive a cash payment of $11,000. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms By January 25, you must file a Form 8300 for the $11,000 payment. 2012 ez tax forms By May 27, you must file an additional Form 8300 for the additional payments that total $15,000. 2012 ez tax forms Amending a Report?   If you are amending a report, check box 1a at the top of Form 8300. 2012 ez tax forms Complete the form in its entirety (Parts I-IV) and include the amended information. 2012 ez tax forms Do not attach a copy of the original report. 2012 ez tax forms Where to file. 2012 ez tax forms   Mail the form to the address given in the Form 8300 instructions. 2012 ez tax forms Required statement to buyer. 2012 ez tax forms   You must give a written or electronic statement to each person named on any Form 8300 you must file. 2012 ez tax forms You can give the statement electronically only if the recipient agrees to receive it in that format. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms It must state that you are also reporting this information to the IRS. 2012 ez tax forms   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. 2012 ez tax forms    You must keep a copy of every Form 8300 you file for 5 years. 2012 ez tax forms Examples Example 1. 2012 ez tax forms Pat Brown is the sales manager for Small Town Cars. 2012 ez tax forms On January 6, 2009, Jane Smith buys a new car from Pat and pays $18,000 in cash. 2012 ez tax forms Pat asks for identification from Jane to get the necessary information to complete Form 8300. 2012 ez tax forms A filled-in form is shown in this publication. 2012 ez tax forms Pat must mail the form to the address shown in the form's instructions by January 21, 2009. 2012 ez tax forms He must also send a statement to Jane by January 31, 2010. 2012 ez tax forms Example 2. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 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). 2012 ez tax forms Pat would not have to report the remaining $6,000 cash payment because it is not more than $10,000. 2012 ez tax forms However, he could report it if he felt it was a suspicious transaction. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 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). 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms These dollar amounts are based on Section 3571 of Title 18 of the U. 2012 ez tax forms S. 2012 ez tax forms Code. 2012 ez tax forms 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. 2012 ez tax forms This includes any attempt to structure the transaction in a way that would make it seem unnecessary to file Form 8300. 2012 ez tax forms Structuring means breaking up a large cash transaction into small cash transactions. 2012 ez tax forms How To Get Tax Help You can get
