Currency Transaction Reports (CTR) (PDF)
Select a format
The Bank Secrecy Act, which sets standards for financial institutions for identifying and preventing money laundering, provides that a Currency Transaction Report, or CTR, must be filed with IRS when there is a currency transaction of $10,000 or more. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) oversees and enforces the Bank Secrecy Act, and so a CTR is filed using the IRS/FinCEN Form 8300. This EIA discusses the specifics of filing a CTR.
