Reporting Cash Payments Greater Than $10,000

In accordance with the U.S. Department of the Treasury Publication 1544, SJSU is required to report all cumulative cash transactions more than $10,000 within a 365-day time period to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This is reported on IRS Form 8300. Cash is defined in this publication as:

  • Currency
  • Cashier's checks
  • Money orders
  • Traveler's checks
  • Bank drafts

One of the required fields on IRS Form 8300 is either the Social Security Number (SSN) or Passport Number of the student making the payment. Please be prepared to provide this information at the time you present your payment, if using one of the cash payment methods listed above, and the total payments made within the calendar year exceed $10,000.
