Tax form 1040x amended return She pays for it with a personal check payable to you in the amount of $9,600 and traveler's checks totaling $2,400. Tax form 1040x amended return Because the personal check is not treated as cash, you have not received more than $10,000 cash in the transaction.

Tax form 1040x amended return For example, a $20,000 car is a consumer durable, but a $20,000 dump truck or factory machine is not. Tax form 1040x amended return The car is a consumer durable even if you sell it to a buyer who will use it in a business.

Tax form 1040x amended return Ed Johnson asks you to charter a passenger airplane to take a group to a sports event in another city. Tax form 1040x amended return He also asks you to book hotel rooms and admission tickets for the group. Tax form 1040x amended return In payment, he gives you two money orders, each for $6,000.

Tax form 1040x amended return Example. Tax form 1040x amended return You are a car dealer. Tax form 1040x amended return Mandy White buys a new car from you for $11,500.

Tax form 1040x amended return 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. Tax form 1040x amended return For this reason, the cashier's check is not treated as cash. Tax form 1040x amended return You do not have to file Form 8300 for the transaction.

Tax form 1040x amended return 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.

Tax form 1040x amended return You must file the form within 15 days of the payment that causes the additional payments to total more than $10,000. Tax form 1040x amended return   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.

Tax form 1040x amended return    You must keep a copy of every Form 8300 you file for 5 years. Tax form 1040x amended return Examples Example 1.

Tax form 1040x amended return 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). Tax form 1040x amended return Pat would not have to report the remaining $6,000 cash payment because it is not more than $10,000. Tax form 1040x amended return However, he could report it if he felt it was a suspicious transaction. Tax form 1040x amended return 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.
