Re: Buying A Boat

What was your impression of the guy? It doesn't strike me as too surprising that someone is looking for ways to avoid attention or taxes. How often does a small business give you a discount for cash? We all know that's to help them avoid tax. If he gave you a discount it would be easier for you to accept...

I don't see what this seller is concerned about with a check for the proceeds.
I dont either but he is going to get a bank check for the boat. i would rather have it recorded by his signing the check.
I just had a thought, maybe he is getting ready to declare bankruptcy?

The $10K limit was to stop drug dealers and others involved in illegal activities from depositing many 10's of thousands at once.

There is no need to

It used to be only for cash greater than 10k.

Has that changed?
I think the ruling is for anything the bank finds 'suspicious' - which is activity not normally associated with the account holder. The Nest has a nice write up on this. Also, I just read the IRS is using social media to help them identify assets taxpayers have that may trigger conditions for a successful audit.

Buying A Boat

So i have decided to buy a Riptide 31 sailboat. I have had the survey done and i am happy with everything. So on friday we agreed to meet on monday to finalize the deal. So the owner just called me and asked if i could bring cash to pay him. or if i could split the checks into amounts under 10,000. should i be concerned? It just seems sketchy to me.
