Do that more than once and it is pretty hard to claim it was a mistake. And why would you even want to? CTR's aren't the end of the world for a legitimate player. As a matter of fact if you are audited, a couple CTR's is supporting evidence on your side.
The down side is wasted time and casino having your personal info. BUT they probably do anyway, no matter what we think. If you are worried about this just play short sessions. That takes care of almost all problems.
That depends on if your tribal or non-tribal! Wait you in Vegas... you mean as in circumventing CTR reporting?
Just structure your transactions... maybe agenting as well. For example, conducting three transactions of $4,000 is more than $10,000, which is the threshold of reporting a CTR. If the casino you're at did not track multiple transactions, you might be able to circumvent the reporting of their transactions. However, because most casinos track transactions of $4,000 (and lower), structuring this $12,000 transaction into three, smaller transactions would not prevent a CTR from being filed. And, while it may be possible to break up $12,000 into 20 individual transactions of $600 each, casino personnel also maintains awareness of this tactic and would likely detect the numerous trips to the cage to perform similar transactions... LOL! Just a note, I don't condone this type of behavior and it's only for the sake of argument.
There is this law that the IRS enforces called Structuring. If you try to avoid 10 large and higher to avoid CTRS to avoid taxes and they can prove it.
Then you have a serious problem. The IRS has the power of immediate seizer.
They would have to see a pattern. Take a wild fucken guess who would alert them ?
That would be the casino. So if your avoiding trails be smart about it.
