Unlawful Structuring of Currency Transactions

Federal law prohibits structuring multiple cash deposits to avoid the bank’s preparation and filing with the IRS of a Currency Transaction Report.

The report must be prepared by a financial institution when a cash deposit of more than $10,000 is made by a customer in violation. The crime for unlawful structuring of currency transactions is charged under 31 U.S.C. §5324(a)(3).

Many of these investigations involve Special Agents with the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Cases are prosecuted by an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA).
