Charged With Money Structuring?

Money Structuring Offenses

Counsel from an Aggressive Miami Criminal Defense Attorney

If you have been accused of money structuring, then we invite you to contact the Law Office of Michael Mirer, P.A. today. Attorney Mirer was formerly the Assistant State Attorney in Miami-Dade County and now provides unparalleled legal insight for clients facing state or federal charges.

Money Structuring Definitions

Money structuring (or "smurfing" as it is sometimes called) is described in 31 U.S. Code § 5324. It prohibits breaking down large deposits into smaller deposit amounts of less than $10,000.

It is federal law that all banks and financial institutions report deposits of $10,000 or more, so when a pattern of significant cash deposits of less than $10,000 emerges, it becomes suspected that a larger transaction is being concealed for tax evasion or money laundering purposes.

Money structuring is a felony that can result in:

  • Up to five years in prison
  • Fines in accordance with title 18 of the U.S. Code

It should also be noted that money structuring can be charged even if the source of the money is legal and if the suspect pays the proper income tax on the cash in question.

If you've been accused, then we invite you to contact our firm today. An award-winning, aggressive Miami criminal defense attorney is prepared to hear your story and provide you the emphatic, seasoned defense the seriousness of your charges calls for.

It is possible to face the allegations against you with confidence.
