CTR reporting pamphlet issued by FinCEN
WASHINGTON (3/4/09)--The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has released a pamphlet on currency transaction reporting (CTR) as required by the Bank Secrecy Act. The pamphlet, “Notice to Customers: A CTR Reference Guide,” explains why financial institutions must require identification and personal information for transactions that trigger CTR, defines “structuring”--breaking up currency transactions to avoid reporting them to the government--and provides examples of structured transactions. Federal law requires financial institutions to report currency transactions over $10,000 conducted by or on behalf of one person, and multiple currency transactions that aggregate to be more than $10,000 in one day. The federal law requiring these reports was passed to safeguard the financial industry. To see the pamphlet, use the link.
