SUBJECT: New Telephone Numbers For The Internal Revenue
Service Detroit Computing Center

The Internal Revenue Service Detroit Computing Center recently moved to a new facility, the only one in the country that processes and maintains the data base for large currency transaction reports. Regardless of relocation, financial institutions should continue mailing the currency transaction reports to the post office box address stated in the instructions on Form 4789, Currency Transaction Report.

Financial institutions frequently call the IRS Computing Center with questions about completing Form 4789 and Bank Secrecy Act requirements. Since the Center's move, many telephone numbers have changed. The numbers for the most frequently called areas at the Center are as follows:

Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Compliance Branch *(313) 234-1613
BSA Compliance Branch - FACSIMILE (313) 234-1614
Magnetic Media Hotline (313) 234-1445
BSA Electronic Bulletin Board (313) 234-1453
Suspicious Transactions Hotline (No Change) (800) 800-2877

* To contact a specific BSA Representative, call this general office number, and you will be referred to the appropriate person.

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Cathy Swickle, Public Affairs Officer at the Center, (313) 234-1052.
