Jerry Jones CPA
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a CPA that you deal directly with, that knows the Self Storage business, that works in all 50 states and is there for you when you need him?
In addition to being the best tax advisor I have had the pleasure of working with, Jerry is first and foremost a wonderful person. Building my first storage facility and being a rookie to the industry, I was nervous on what I could expect in my first year of development. With all of the ups and downs of this first year all I can say is I had absolutely no worries when it came to the the most important part of our business - the numbers. Jerry Jones took the time to answer every question or concern we had when going though this process. If you are in the storage business give yourself a leg up and apply Jerry’s experience and expertise of this expanding and ever changing industry. You will be thankful you did.

Here’s What People Should Know About Reporting Cash Payments

Federal law requires a person to report cash transactions of more than $10,000 to the IRS. Here are some facts about reporting these payments.

Who’s covered

For purposes of cash payments, a “person” is defined as an individual, company, corporation, partnership, association, trust or estate. For example:

  • Dealers of jewelry, furniture, boats, aircraft, automobiles, art, rugs and antiques
  • Pawnbrokers
  • Attorneys
  • Real estate brokers
  • Insurance companies
  • Travel agencies

How to report

People report the payment by filing Form 8300, Report of Cash Payments Over $10,000 Received in a Trade or Business.

A person can file Form 8300 electronically using the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network’s BSA E-Filing System. E-filing is free, quick and secure. Filers will receive an electronic acknowledgement of each form they file. Those who prefer to mail Form 8300 can send it to the IRS at the address listed on the form.

What’s cash

Cash includes coins and currency of the United States or any foreign country. For some transactions, it’s also a cashier’s check, bank draft, traveler’s check or money order with a face amount of $10,000 or less.

A person must report cash of more than $10,000 they received:

  • In one lump sum
  • In two or more related payments within 24 hours
  • As part of a single transaction within 12 months
  • As part of two or more related transactions within 12 months

When to file

A person must file Form 8300 within 15 days after the date they received the cash. If they receive payments toward a single transaction or two or more related transactions, they file when the total amount paid exceeds $10,000.
