Saw this from a friend... Anyone know the answers? Some friends and I just saw an article on CTR's.. We thought this would be the place for answers other than calling the IRS. Lets say you bring in 9700 in cash to the cage at 10am deposit it and go play. . No CTR we know. You take out a 5000 marker, play and win 5001. You take the 5001 in chips to the cashier and put it back on deposit. CTR due to the 24 hour rule? Or, You wire 25k to the casino, you take out a marker for 11k, color up and take the chips to the cage for redeposit, Same answer as above? Or, deposit 9900 in cash. 21 hours later you deposit 3000 in cash. CTR? Or, you saved some chips from a previous trip. Come and deposit 15k in chips, is that a CTR? Does the cashier fill out the form every time someone gives 10k or more every time! No matter what? Does the computer automatically notify their business office upstairs to fill out a form? Is the time clock for a 24 hour period 12:01 midnight to 12:01 midnight? Or from the time of deposit? Don't you think in this day and age 10k cash just isn't that much to have this law in effect? Probably 50k is more reasonable. If a drug lord or some nut wants to rip off society they would be doingit with more cash than 10k in cash?
