The IRS has recently revised its Form 8300, which businesses must file within 15 business days when they receive over $10,000 in cash from a single transaction or related transaction.
Form 8300 is a joint form issued by the IRS and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and is used by the government to track individuals that evade taxes and those who profit from criminal activities.
These requirements must be followed by all businesses in the United States; however they are especially pertinent to automotive dealers.
For all transactions occurring on or after July 1, 2011 in which your business receives more than $10,000, you are required to use the Form 8300 that was revised in June 2011.
