“Cash" is defined as U.S. coin and currency, cashier's check, money order, bank draft, or traveler's checks.
For every time the University receives over $10,000 in cash in one transaction or in two or more related transactions, we are required to file IRS Form 8300 "Report of Cash Payments Over $10,000 Received in a Trade or Business." Transactions occurring within a cumulative 12 month period are considered related (and reportable) if the recipient (Kean University) knows, or has reason to know, that each transaction is one of a series of related transactions. Payments for tuition, fees, room and board, etc. are considered related (and reportable) transactions.
Cash does not include checks drawn on the payer's own account, such as personal checks, regardless of the amount.
Trade or business is defined as any activity constituting the sale of goods or the performance of services to produce income under Internal Revenue Code Section 162. One such example of trade or business income for a university would be tuition payments.
