CHANGE IN POLICY ON ENFORCEMENT OF STRUCTURING LAW

Update on Abusive IRS and DOJ Practices

Regular readers of PTT will recall that in the June and July, 2015 issues of this newsletter, Scott MacPherson reported on both IRS and Department of Justice (DOJ) abuses of the so-called currency structuring laws. See Scott’s articles: “Beware of Currency Structuring Laws,” Parts I and II. “Structuring” is the practice of depositing to or withdrawing from your own bank account sums of cash just under $10,000, specifically to avoid the federal information reporting requirements imposed upon banks under 31 U.S.C. §§5311-5325.

As Scott explained in the two-part article mentioned above, it is a crime to structure a transaction in such a manner as to avoid the reporting requirements of the law. Thus, if you wish to move, say $11,000, but don’t wish to generate a currency transaction report, you might be tempted to move $5,000 in one transaction and $6,000 in another, or in other such increments. However, if you did so, you would be guilty of a federal crime.

 

But the structuring laws are pointed at and are intended to catch drug dealers and other criminals engaged in money laundering and other criminal activity. The laws were never pointed at people carrying on their innocent ordinary daily business and personal financial affairs. In practice, though, the IRS has enforced the structuring laws against Americans who are not engaged in any criminal activity whatsoever, and who had no idea that the mere act of withdrawing, say $9,000 cash from their account one day, followed by $2,000 the next day, could possibly get them into trouble with the U.S. Government.
