no it's not my mom can home with ten thousand dollars in cash she won it at the casino

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

its not illegal.banks are required to report cash transactions of 10k or more because such transactions are unusual and may be related to criminal activity.you are allowed to have as much cash as you like, however the irs may want you to prove that income taxes have been paid on it.

It's an arbitrary amount that 'looks suspicious'. They wanted to set a limit, and that was chosen. You can obviously have two transactions each using $9,999 without getting reported to the government. Silly rules, that really accomplish nothing.

Well try walking down the street and say "I have 10k." and show it. I think you wont last to long.

Carrying 10,000 is not illegal. I believe you refer to the fact that withdrawals over 10,000 must be reported to the IRS. It still isn't illegal to carry it, the bank just reports it to the IRS. That law pre dates the Patriot Act by a long time as well...

I share that experience. We called the lawyer, and we got the money back, but the lawyer took 30%... Better than having it all taken away.

P.S. For those who says it's not illegal, tell that to those guys who took my money at the airport. And I didn't even carry cash, it was traveler's checks. They did let me keep the cash on me, which was $200. Note: the checks came from the grandparents.

P.P.S. I dunno why I get some thumbs down ratings, but don't give me a thumb down for something U.S. Customs Agents did. If you have taken over $10,000 dollars, reported over $10,000, and the Customs Agents lets you go, good for you.

It would be almost physically impossible to carry that amount.
You will have wads flashing every wear, falling out everywear.
Most certainly you could loose it fast in many unimaginable kind of ways, hey it could even get trashed in bad weather!!!
Government what a paper trail to the cash or cheque over $10,000. You really can't physically take it with you. Imagine having to carry a suitcase around! You would be stressed much more on where too stash it. Really keep it in the bank.

Seriously on 9/11 I panicked on the day. Packed my car with cash and water. - Really you can't stash that kind of cash too well.

It It made me realize it seems like such a joke to strive for riches as people do.

The Money got back in the bank safely within a few days. Probably borrowed money at that - I dont recall that part.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

why would you want to carry more than 10 g's of cash anyway? i would be afraid of being mugged, or getting drunk and spending it all at a strip club, best to put it in the bank

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I didn't know it was a violation. It has always been a violation to carry it out of or into the country without declaring it.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

it is not illegal but it will raise some flags. All US bank and securities firms must investigate as to the source of the money to ensure it is not part of money laundering for illegal purposes. Just be prepared to prove where the money came from and that it was obtain and is being used legally.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I've never heard it's illegal to carry as much cash as you want.

Not smart, but not illegal.

You may be thinking of money laundering banking rules. If you make a cash deposit of over 10 grand, the bank has to report it.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Its not illegal.

I call it The Nazification of America.Its all about control over the masses.
The laws apply to all peon's,but the system members all have whats called judicial immunity.
Maybe freer then most,but not truly free.

You can carry up to $9999.00 but $10,000.00 "draws suspect" as looking for or selling...'whatever'. Stupid illegal DEA regulation that can confiscate your money and give you a BIG hassle, probably costing you lots more of your $$. Even depositing or withdrawing over $9999.00 gets reported, now.
Besides, cash is visible and can be stolen by murderous force. If you've got THAT much, carry plastic or a debit card or machine gun toting bodyguard.
This came about long before there was a "Patriot Act".

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

The first link below says that it is not illegal to do so. More accurately, you must *declare* the amount when you enter the U.S. For travel within the U.S., there is no such requirement to declare it, and it is not illegal to carry and/or conceal the money.

The second link indicates that it is the "war on drugs" that led to this law.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Holy crappola it is ??? That is a bunch of bull **** .

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

profiling is wonderful ain't it?

the hell with the three that disagree. it is profiling brought on by the war on drugs. fake wars based on paranoia tend to lead to profiling and other acts of fear. it is a shame that uneducated people like you vote considering you have no clue what happens in the US
