I don't understand why no one can ever give intelligent answers that pertain to the question. If you don't know the answer, or don't want to answer, or don't have an intelligent answer, be respectful and don't respond at all and move on.

Now to answer your question completely.......
The amount you receive and when you receive it determine when you must file. Generally, you must file Form 8300 within 15 days after receiving a payment. If the Form 8300 due date (the 15th or last day you can timely file the form) falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, it is delayed until the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday.

In the event of more than one payment.......
In some transactions, the buyer may arrange to pay you in cash installment payments. If the first payment is more than $10,000, you must file Form 8300
within 15 days. If the first payment is not more than $10,000, you must add the first payment and any later payments made within 1 year of the first payment. When the total cash payments are more than $10,000, you must file Form 8300 within 15 days.

With all that being said, the answer to your question is (B) Must report the event to the IRS within 15 days after receiving more than $10,000 in cash for a single transaction.

Can you sue? That is a question for an attorney. As real estate agents we aren't licensed to give legal advice.

As a side note, not sure what your mls is like but mine has this advisory for all listings:

"All measurements and all calculations of area are approximate. Information provided by Seller/Other sources, not verified by Broker. All interested persons should independently verify accuracy of information. Provided properties may or may not be listed by the office/agent presenting the information."

In my area it means the house is connected to the city sewer system so no septic system.

You can't buy properties on Trulia. Trulia is an advertising site for real estate agents. And be aware that there are lots of wiring scams out there. Don't send anyone money unless you're positive you know what you're doing.


When you want to buy a home, hire an Exclusive Buyer's Agent to represent you, not a regular buyer's agent. EBAs represent homebuyers only, so there is no conflict of interest to jeopardize your negotiating position. Contact http://naeba.org for a referral to an EBA who will give you valuable advice, not a sales pitch.

If your short sale goes through (odds are against it), your first agent will be paid for that transaction. But hire an agent you like and use them moving forward. Just let the new agent know about the short sale contract in advance...you'll be fine.

Good question...just a bad agent. They are wasting their time and yours. Hire an Exclusive Buyer Agent to represent you instead. Visit naeba.org for a referral.

No, there's no way to get your money back. Contracts exist for a reason and you are bound by the terms of the contract you signed.
