Default How much cash can you deposit without an audit?

I have a buyer that is paying cash for a vehicle.

How much cash can I deposit without having to fill out forms / audit / whatever?

If it's a certain amount (say $10K), does that mean you can go back the next day & deposit another $10K and so on?

Thanks

You don't need to fill anything out for deposit. I believe its withdrawal only.

Anything $10k or over requires a report. IIRC, its called a Cash Transaction Report (CTR) and it is required for deposits or withdrawals. It's been a long time since I worked in a bank, though. I remember that the convenience store near the bank always made multiple deposits during the course of the day, anytime they had accumulated more than 9k in cash, so they wouldn't have to hassle with the CTR.

I can forward you an email I got from a guy in Nigeria that could probably help you out.

Its ridiculous that carrying currency is treated like being a criminal.

You're selling a car- the transaction is documented by state records. Don't worry about it. You are not in the high roller category.

Especially since everyone (criminal or not) knows about the $10K limit.

You don't have to fill out anything. You bank might, but you'll never know about it either way.

But the bottom line is the only reason anyone would care about this in the first place is if they're trying to dodge taxes.

just more crap from a corrupt and broken government to watch your every move.

There hasn't bee one system or facet of life that the government hasn't taken and royally screwed over given enough time.

I'll never see a dollar of social security... I'm 29

Why not have your buyer's bank set up a wire transfer? It can be easily arranged by your bank and the buyer's bank and is usually done in a matter of minutes once the buyer gives the OK. Banks usually charge around $25 for this service.

That way neither of you has to worry about carrying large sums of cash around.

Exactly.. The bank must do this internally, but they will just use the information they have for you on account.

Yes, the limit is 10K.

You don't suppose the gov't agents with the scanners @ the airports can tell exactly how much cash you have on your person, do you?
It might be pretty easy with the thread built into each and every note...

It depends on the bank. Some follow the federal rules of reporting $10,000 or more, some report less. I changed banks in Fla. because I used a state bank and they reported anything at $3,000 or over.

Not true. We caught an employee "stealing". Won't go into details. He brought $20K back to the office in $100 bills. I took to bank. Had to fill out paperwork as to what was going on.
