The casino industry is a cash business that can be a target for those who want to launder money gained from illegal activities. To prevent that from happening, casinos participate in a process of tracking cash transactions, or other transactions that may look suspicious, and providing that information to law enforcement for investigative purposes. Title 31 of the United States Code is the law that provides casinos and investigative agencies with the tools they need to combat money laundering. Title 31 requires the completion of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) Currency Transaction Report (FinCEN CTR) form whenever there are large transactions involving currency. The form is completed when cash transactions exceed $10,000 in a single day. In this course, you will learn when you should fill out a CTR and how to complete the CTR form.
