Inactive Financial Institution Letters

Bank Secrecy Act Compliance

May 30, 1995


SUBJECT: Revised Currency Transaction Report (IRS Form 4789)

The Internal Revenue Service has revised its Currency Transaction Report (CTR) form that banks and other institutions are required to use to help law enforcement agencies detect and prevent money laundering and other illegal activities. The revised form is now available for distribution; however, banks may not begin using the new form until October 1, 1995. The attached advance copy may only be used for training purposes, so bank employees can become familiar with differences between the old and new forms prior to the effective date.

The new form may be ordered without charge by calling the IRS Forms Distribution Center at 1-800-829-3676. Simply follow the voice prompts, press Option #1 (for ordering blank forms) and make your request by form number (IRS Form 4789). Orders should be placed in time to allow for delivery prior to the effective date. Questions concerning the new forms should be directed to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) at 1-800-949-2732.
