I got a refund from the IRS from money they siezed from my bank account around 7 years ago. I forgot to cash the check because I put it somewhere in my house and forgot about it. Now they send me another check. Should I cash it? Can I get in trouble?
CASH it, then drive around w/ $16K CASH. This way another branch of govt. (local/city/county/state/federal) can separate you from your $$$ via civil forfeiture. Or you can DEPOSIT the $16K CHECK, greatly reducing the likelihood that the funds will get civilly forfeited.
