With gold and silver becoming a popular asset class for investors in recent years many buyers of precious metals may be wondering what they should or should not report to the Internal Revenue Service.

The following Infographic from JM Bullion provides a simple and informative guide to help you make sure you’re letting the government know what you’re up to so they don’t come banging down your door.

Not everything you own needs to be reported (depending on the types of precious metals you have), but you certainly wouldn’t want to get caught up in an audit if the IRS knows you are in possession of certain types of gold and silver investments.

    • Be informed says:

      Let’s face it the IRS are like those thugs that the kings use to employ that turn you upside and shake you of any coins you have. They would put a price tag on the POTENTIAL sale of your internal organs as sellable assets. The government has become 100 times worse than a generation ago in which gold and silver and other precious metals was a routine practice, as well transactions within the banks that didn’t have a 1-2 week hold on them for checks over a certain amount.

      Do you know one of the biggest reasons for this crackdown on all potential money sources a person might have, besides the absolute control they want over every last aspect of your life? The economic debt is exploding like a supernovae while the MSM continues to print a happy face with rosy colored glasses that everything is wonderful and booming. That BO saved the economy. The MSM is fantastic and shovelling the horse manure at incredible amounts about the economy, the Ebola situation, the Middle East, Russia, etc, etc. etc………………………

        Not exactly on topic, however I stumbled across this article that quotes the #2 guy at the Federal Reserve as saying the US is preparing a proposal for bank bail ins, (where they take your money right out of your account to fund their losses). He gave this speech yesterday in Sweden. Take appropriate action, folks.

              Why are people still afraid of the IRS?

              They are a COLLECTION AGENCY and are just as easily turned away as a junk debt buyer.

              Down below I see some of the 16th amendment arguments, and even the old “sovereign citizen” crap. It’s not about any of that stuff.

              IT’S COMMERCIAL LAW.

              NOBODY should pay a nickel to beast and it’s IRS. If they ever contact you, here is all it takes to make them go away:

              —-

              Dear IRS,

              You appear to be collecting a tax debt on behalf of the United States government. It is imperative that this matter be resolved so I can pay any amount that may be due as quickly as possible.

              To verify your claim, please send me the following so I can get any tax I owe paid promptly.

              1) A true and correct copy of the signed return that creates the tax you are collecting.
              2) A true and correct copy of the assessment of the tax signed by the secretary.
              3) Copies of all information returns made regarding the tax you are collecting.
              3) A copy of your oath of office required by anyone who handles public money.

              Thanks for your prompt attention to this matter,

              Free Dude

              —–

              The most important thing is to avoid controversy and conflict. So long as you offer to pay in full upon being furnished with sufficient proof of the existence of the tax, which they can not provide EVER, they will simply go away.

              They have no other choice.

              DO NOT refuse to pay the IRS, or say you do not owe a tax over some 16th amendment crap or that you are some kind of “sovereign citizen” when in fact you can not be a sovereign AND a citizen at the same time. If you claim to be a sovereign citizen, you are an idiot and have just signaled the corp that you have no idea what you are talking about.

              YOU SHOULD NEVER REPORT ANYTHING TO THE IRS. Especially if it is something other than FRNs.

          Silver Lodge: That’s why no one with more than an ounce of brains, 1: keeps any money in a bank, especially large ones. 2: keeps more than what is absolutely necessary for weekly needs in any institution. Banks continue to make poor decisions and the bigger the bank usually the bigger the errors. Credit unions on the other hand a far less likely to do foolish things because they are so small (local) and answerable to depositors rather than shareholders and nearly untouchable directors on a board. Not a perfect solution but better than some large bank that’s in bed with the FED and the government.

      • Personally I am on the fence on the subject of Gold/Silver.

        I do have 5 x 1 ounce gold bars I have had for quite a long time but they are more for last ditch “bribe” my way outta the S situations. Probably got about 30 ounces of silver in various coins too.

        I figure in a slow slide there will be rampant inflation and it would be better to keep the stuff. If it all goes belly up in a big hurry gold wont be much use at all – and my hard assets, food, security items and means to produce more food – will be more use than gold/silver.

        A few ounces of gold may be just what I need to get out of a sticky situation but I still reckon a 150Gr 308 fast expanding projectile will achieve a better result (no chance of a double cross?) 🙂

        • Navy Vet says:

          Aussie .. pardon me for being obtuse, I thought firearm possession down under, and in all former British protectorates, was outlawed some years ago, yet you make a direct reference to possession of a firearm in your post.

          What exactly is the law regarding firearm possession in AUS.

          • Hi Navy Vet

            A common belief that we were disarmed after a massacre in 96 but nothing could be further from the truth.

            Gun ownership changed a bit after that. Semi auto centrefire and rimfire as well as pump shotguns were banned except in certain circumstances. Pump rimfire, centrefire, lever actions and all bolt actions were left untouched and while the individual states still manage their own firearm registries there was supposed to be “uniform” laws across the country. That is not a fact but we are getting by OK.

            Handguns have always been regulated but join a pistol club and shoot a half dozen times a year and you can pretty well have what you like except .50 cals and some states allow those. I am not in a pistol club anymore but I had a S&W 9mm, a 45ACP Colt, S&W revolvers in 22, 38Sp, 357 and 44 Mag. Could have had more if I wanted.

            I am basically a hunter these days and have about 25 longarms, from 22rf right up to 375H&H as well as maybe a dozen shotguns from 410 to 12G. If I want another that is no problem either – just cant go into a store and buy one like you can. No restrictions on ammo but I cant buy ammo for anything I don’t have a license for.

            At the time of our infamous and totally ineffective “buyback” the only gun I had to hand in was a Ruger 10/22. I had sold my Rem 1100 and Rem 742 x 308 a few years before.

            Having a gun purely for self defence is not a genuine reason to own a gun but if you are a club member, hunter or target shooter and if, during a home invasion you could get a gun out of your safe in time and use it you’d get away with it as our laws are specific in that you are allowed to use what force is necessary to neutralise any threat to your life or that of others. Bit “grey”, but like I said, it would be considered reasonable to shoot someone who was coming through your front door with a machete – just do it properly so there is only one (your) side to the story.

            Another thing – we had pretty much unregulated supply of suppressors in some states here and in my state they were only finally banned completely about 2 years ago. Until then you could own them but not use them. There are probably still many, many thousands of them out there as I heard of very few getting handed in. Mostly there were rimfire suppressors but there has always been a few CF’s as well.

            Perhaps to enlighten you further New Zealand has no regulation of suppressors at all and very sensible gun laws too. Suppressors are so common in New Zealand that the rifle manufacturers – Ruger, CZ, Sako, (all of them in fact) thread their barrels 1/2″x20 in the factory before they exported them – you cant buy a rimfire off the rack over there that isn’t factory threaded. For a while about 10-15 years ago a lot of factory rifles here were also supplied factory threaded.

            The UK also has sensible laws regarding suppressors – in fact it is nearly impossible to get a license for a 22 unless you also have a suppressor. “Cant have chappies wandering around at night lamping (jacklighting) rabbits and making noise that might upset the neighbours, what? Now go and get a suppressor and I’ll give you a license, there’s a good chap”

            The Brits are also leading the way with suppressing shotguns with remarkable success. Have a look at www-saddleyandgunroom-co-uk Put in dots instead of dashes of course. They are also fitting suppressors to centrefire rifles like the New Zealanders, both screw on and over barrel.

            While we don’t have your firearms freedom, we are still doing OK.

            Cheers

            Aussie

How much longer are you morons going to continue to keep your heads jammed up your asses on the all-important subject of racial realism?
              Until you’ve been reduced to a minority inside a turd world infested crap hole of a once great, 90% White nation and when the black and mestizo percentage of the USA is 64 percent or higher?

              Black alone – 13,753 (64.9%)

                Not to dispute what you stated, but this does make sense…

                503 Days after Trayvon …

                This pretty well sums up the issue.

                During the 503 Days between the Trayvon Martin shooting and the Zimmerman verdict…..

                10,865 Blacks were killed by other Blacks that is, on average, over 21 per DAY!

                Also: The United States ranks 3rd in murders throughout the world. However, if you take out Chicago, Detroit, Washington, D.C., and New Orleans, the United States is 4th from the bottom for murders.

                These 4 Cities have the toughest gun control laws in the United States.

                All 4 are also controlled by Democrats.

                It would be absurd to draw any conclusions .

                Ps. Do you know how to brain wash a liberal ?….Give them an enema.

                Not to ruffle any feathers out there, but look at the facts….

        Off Topic. Primary Elections in many states have come and gone and some are very near as in Wyoming, it will be on the 19th. I have one question, why do many people complain about the encumbents and some say we need Term Limits but come election day they either don’t vote or run right down and vote for the guy that’s already in office, and then turn right around and start complianing again and saying we need to throw the bums out. So next election vote for the new guy! Trekker Out.

        • Cellar Spider says:

          because they complain about the “other guys”, not their guy. The reality is, the congress has the right representatives. The people in each district elect the guy who they feel will best represent their views.

          The patisanship you see is because of poor leadership at the top. Our last two presidents seem to be /have been devoid of any philosophy. Its the presidents job to convince the people who then instruct their representatives how to vote. Absence of any instruction, representatives default to the “party line” which by definition is partsan.

          Thats how I see it anyways.

          • Mountain Trekker says:

            C Spider. That is the reason Primaries are so important, even if you want to vote the party line. It’s your opportuniy to elect some one new. As far as Conservatives go, people will still go and vote the same old encumbent RINO back in to office instead of electing a Tea Party candidate as most primay elections have already shown this year. Vote or Don’t Vote, that’s your choice, but someone is going to rule over you. Trekker Out.

      • Acid Etch says:

        The sovereign citizen argument is brilliant and well-founded in historical fact.

        • Gods Creation says:

          AE and JOH,

          If you even remotely attempt the 16th amendment crap you are an idiot. It is irrelevant anyway, as the amendment did nothing to institute an income tax.

          If you are a citizen of something, you relieve yourself of sovereignty for the privilege of citizenship. Therefore, it is NOT POSSIBLE to be a sovereign AND a citizen.

          The phrase “sovereign citizen” was well promoted by the SPLC and propagated to cops everywhere, merely because making such an argument indicates that you are clueless about their system and are ripe for the picking.

          The same is true about most of the idiotic arguments you see for the IRS, or any other part of the corp. There is no need to pay the IRS anything, but there is no need to get in trouble for not paying what nobody really owes anyway.

          The key to winning ANY legal battle with the corp is to keep the burden of proof on it. Never disagree, always offer to pay upon SIGNED proof of claim, ie a contract. If you can do that, and it is not that difficult using their own rules, you will never see a courtroom or feel a collection action.

          The corp can be easily beaten, including it’s IRS. But not if you do things the hard way. A free man does not prove himself free with words and papers, he proves it by acting free and agreeing to pay his contracts IF a claim against him is proven.

            The 16th amendment is part of the corporate constitution of the United States, not the organic constitution that is clearly no longer in effect.

            Besides, it did nothing to institute a tax. It was put there merely to confuse the people of the future when they awoke to the fraud being instituted in 1913.

            The IRS is easily beaten, but you must use commercial law. Only an idiot would argue the corps statutes and laws against it, in it’s own courts.

            The People are on an equal footing with the corp in their courts ONLY when using the commercial law they operate under.

            It is their claim, and they win by shifting the burden of proof to you. They say you owe a tax and you say you don’t, thereby accepting the burden of proving the negative.

            Agree to pay upon proof of claim, and since they can NEVER prove the claim they can never proceed against you.

          Always play by the rules, and here I mean THEIR rules. I know it rubs folks the wrong way but the best thing anyone can do is learn the rules and then you can find all the ways around them. I use to work at a bank and the rules (IRS) were that anyone who came in and deposited, or withdrew, $10,000 or more was required to fill out an IRS form. If someone tried to get around this by bringing in $7,000 and then the spouse comes in and deposits $3,000 or more so afterwards, they still had to fill out the form because the Feds have a name for this activity, it’s called ‘structuring’. They’ve prosecuted people for this. The same thing goes for taking this amount out of the country. It’s screwed up but they will seize your money and prosecute you. You don’t have to like it, it just is. To avoid either of these entanglements whether it’s cash or bullion, all you have to do is be patient and do it over long periods of time so that it doesn’t require any forms, and so that it won’t trigger a structuring investigation. Slow and steady wins the race.

    • I don’t know if you are right or not Jack, but what I do know is if you try and refuse to pay taxes you’ll be arguing from a jail cell. Not criticizing you personally here either ….. just an observation.

      This IRS and Taxes is similar if you ask about the Gun Control Laws in Germany in 1933? Then compare that to the Gun Control act of 1965. But nobody has a copy or can find a copy of the German Gun laws to compare the two.
      How convenient and nobody wants to look too hard to see if it almost the same.

    OK, a second purchase of gold 3 hours, or 24 hours later as “related” and must be reported to the IRS. However, what about 3 days, 3 months, or 3 years? Obviously, the idea is to keep the IRS out of it LEGALLY.

    This article does not speak to if, when, or how the Federal Government has, or will again, call back gold, like they did in the last century. I’ve read where there is certain mints of gold coins that are exempt.

  9. Townsaver says:

    Reading the infographic shows that most amounts citizens deal in are going to be exempt. If you are trading 1000 oz of silver or 25 oz of gold at a time, you probably don’t have a lot to fear from the government, you probably have already paid them off.

    I have some silver in the safe, and I would buy more at today’s $20.00 per oz, but have re-focused back into food stores as the potential now for feeding more that family exits.

    Building teams is wise, while some freak out about op-sec, you have to sleep sometime. Everyone says survival is 90% mental, and if you can’t sleep or are on constant guard, you WILL burn out. If you can not trust a single person on this Eath other than yourself and God, than what the hell are you doing here and why would you want to survive?

    That idiot Glenn Beck has all of you brainwashed against the early 20th century progressive socialists. Now what exactly are you railing against? Do you like child labor? 13 hour work days? 1 day off a month? Wage slavery? Uninspected food? Squalor? Denial of women’s suffrage?

    No don’t get me wrong public spending on education health and housing is what causes the rise in prices, but one has to understand that a socialist back then would equal a libertarian by today’s standards. Accept that the early progressives were a valuable and contributing influence to our society.

    Jack London and Ernest Hemingway were socialists too.

    • MXLord327 says:

      That is one of the dumbest posts I have ever read anywhere…. Socialists are socialists no matter what era they are in. They ALWAYS push for more gov’t control over people’s lives, nothing libertarian about that!

  16. Acid Etch says:

    The precious metals craze is a bunch of bullshit. Who would you sell it to in SHTF? Might as well put a bulls eye on your chest “come loot me”. Who would you sell it too in peacetime? Back to the PM company for scrap prices? THAT’S HOW THEY MAKE MONEY OFF YOU. BUY LOW SELL HIGH.

    I tried to sell back the wedding ring and was given insultingly low offers.

    Anyway trade in SHTF is the most dangerous option. It’s better to steal.

    • Gregory8 says:

      Acid Etch: Obviously you don’t understand much about economics in general, nor its history. Money is what ever medium of exchange most folks are willing to except. Over millennium it has taken many forms, salt being an important one for the preservation of foods. But nothing has lasted as long as precious metals, gold and silver in particular. These two have not ceased being a medium of exchange for well over 5,000 years. They are what most countries use to back their ‘paper money’ should folks figure out that the ‘paper’ is worth the paper it’s printed on. During all social and economic upheavals throughout history folks have fallen back on these two metals when all else has failed, and it looks like they will continue to be a safe haven for the foreseeable future. If things get very bad and no one wants your worthless paper, what are you going to trade with? There are some here that haven’t thought this out well and have no PMs. They will be forced to trade some of their food, water, ammo, or other critical supplies. Now you can ignore history and say like so many fools that “it’s different this time”, but that would be whistling past the grave yard. History never repeats itself, but it usually rhymes. Got PMs?

    The founding fathers pushed this taxation without representation fucking bullshit.

    Then when they got to power the fucking hypocrites promptly used military force to crush the three rebellions in amerikkkan history all fought over taxation without representation (Whiskey rebellion, Ayer’s rebellion, Frye’s rebellion) (excluding the Civil War, which was also fought over taxation without representation). Washington himself led government troops to the field to put down these just rebellions and used the terror of the soldiers to bring the sheeple under his iron heel and force them to pay the government.

    NOT to put too fine a point on it, but if you are playing in the “bullion” market you have a fool for an investment adviser. Like the crap tables in Vegas, the house always wins in the long run.

    Obama’s lies know no limit. Sure he is just a puppet in a long line of puppets, but the criminality of his actions leave little hope that his agenda can be thwarted. He backs the Muslim Brotherhood and is likely a member. He is the stealth president beholden to the enemies of America. This evil cabal he is the leading frontman for are diabolical murderers and want us all dead. When will the American people chop off the head?

    • Townsaver says:

      America will never rise up and defeat the serpent. People voted this clown in, twice. We are getting exactly what we deserve.

      It is a sad day, but this ship can not be righted. A republican president is not going to fix anything. It is game over. I have been saying it for a few years now.

      Manage The Collapse.

      And no, I have not conceited, I am not giving up. I simply realize the situation and have already completed appropriate actions to secure me and my family, and possibly a few others. Any extra time from right now until the false flag event is just a bonus, as the staples are secured. Now I am working on luxuries like cinnamon, garlic salt, vanilla extract.

      Do I have some silver, yes. But it will not be used for trade on the day after. It will be worthless for many months, as you can’t eat it. After we come out of the darkness, and rebuild a just and moral society, small as it may be, then we can use silver.

      If not, there are plenty of colloidal silver folks here I can sell it to! Take it easy now, that was a poke at fun. It that stuff works for you, more power to you. It is all natural, better than anything that big pharma will sell you. However in my humble opinion in is likely the power of you mind combined with “faith” that creates the desired effect. That is not to say if I were in dire straights I might not try it. I prefer using nothing until an ailment is present. The body was designed to heal itself. Clean food, water and a good night sleep is very effective.

    Friend told me banks have similar reporting requirements. Illegal for a teller to tell you them – so don’t ask. Can freeze your accts if you xfer from/to bad county like paki’s land (despite its enormous population resource!) Stacking transactions similar to above infographic triggers a report. Cash deposits without known business justification triggers. Etc. If you don’t think someone is watching you all of the time, then you are not awake.

  27. Steady Steve says:

    Buy and sell under the reportable amounts. Keep it to every 1 to 2 months. Not reportable, not illegal. Also keep as low a balance in the bank as possible and stay out of debt. When I buy a car I make a substantial down payment with a credit card, pay that balance off in the next month with cash and pay the car off in 6 months with cash already held. It’s raised my credit rating and there is no reporting of large transactions by the dealer or bank.

    • Warchild Dammit! says:

      SS,did ya’s find some extra federal for genius,I you know how he loves the stuff!

      • Genius says:

        Warchild, why are you trying to be a smartass? Several others here expressed the same problem. Its a FACT federal ammo has way more fail to fire issues than any other brand. My own however has NEVER had a failure. I usually like your posts and give you many thumbs up but maybe you have issues with calling out what the military is doing. Im glad federal works for you but for many others it doesn’t. If my life is on the line, my ammo won’t be federal. Have a beer and relax, it’s all good man 🙂

    • Genius says:

      straight shooter, All forgiven here too my man. I hope things get better for you. I do some wildland firefighting and I know what it is like facing the flames of fury. I too try and help people by sharing my knowledge and ideas here. Bullshit wars and blind patriotism are a big peev of mine as you may note if you have read this forum for a few years. We have no legitimate government as it is only for the power and control for the bankers. They engineer every war and love killing. Stealing resources seems to be theyre game and you are right, iraq was going to sell oil in other than dollars. The axis of evil is every country that was going to do the same. Your list of shit they do was spot on. Good to see you are awake and not brainwashed by these evil bastards. Sadly many people are and they are a threat to us all. I have seen some very real psycopaths come out of the military and they are dangerous as hell and need to be identified and called out. My best advice is to warn people and wake them up to joining the military and teach them who they really are fighting for and why. Im glad you see it for what it is. Peace be with you, Genius

      • Nice post Genius…

        It reflects my thoughts as well…

      • straight shooter says:

        Solid copy on everything Genius we are of the same mold.

        I was figuring out your ammo problems and the only recommendation I can give you is really really clean your rifle every year I mean really break it down.
        Check your firing pin. I have not had any problems with FEDERAL ammo. I am more of the old sand-by REMINGTON type.

        But here is a real secret if you can get it where you are get the CHEH STUFF Sula bullte (spelling ) you get a lot of bang for the buck and I have never had a misfire ITS better then our stuff.

        I do not touch reloads for the simple reason I do not trust them In our area last year with the ammo shortage guys were buying brass and bullets but were putting SAND!!! in place of the POWDER and charging high prices and they di di if you get reloads get about a half a dozen and pull the bullets and check the powder.

        Also watch out for the RUSSIAN .22 cal I have heard a lot of war stories on them not sure about the truth thou. But the way things are going I think we are going to see WW3 and it is not going to matter.

        That is it any advice I can give you let me know

        Peace Brother

        STRAIGHT SHOOTER OUT

        • Genius says:

          straight shooter, The only reason I bought the federal was because I wanted mil spec cases and the annealed necks for loading my own. I fired it out of a bolt action that was very clean and the primers were struck good and solid. I still have a few boxes left, maybe I will just fire them and reload the cases to my own match grade specs. I load all my own stuff with winchester primers which I have never had an issue with. I guess I just paid a bit more for brass than I intended lol. I would have bought once fired brass but I dont want mixed headstamps and I want annealed necks. Oh well it’s all good my man, thanks, genius

          • straight shooter says:

            That sounds like a good idea. You know its true some rifles and pistols like certain ammo. its like they have a mine of there own or a finicky eater.

            Example: years ago when I was shooting competitively I would get better groupings with Greek ammo. then Agentenia Ammo.
            I never had a misfire with any foreign stuff. mmmmmm even if it was 50 years old.

            Man I would love to find all that WW2 Ammo that they buried in crates here in the U.S. Some one found it and the Ammo looks like it was just made.

    Someday when I’m an old grumpy bastard like my dad…
    I’ll have a nice safe of silver.
    I won’t spend it.
    I’ll sleep well with it hidden in many safe and secure placed.
    Folks, never put all your eggs in one basket.

    Then…when I do need some of the fiat of the day…it’s off to the coin dealer with just a few coins…enough for he week or month.

    Or… meet a private seller….say a Doc.or a Lawyer for coffee and arms length.

    The #1 reason to have metals…so you can tell the IRS to fuck off!!!

    The jews have enough of our money in the form of interest and taxes.

    Gods money…. The only thing I trust.

    • Townsaver says:

      I’m on a posting roll tonight so I’ll speak to this whole “It’s the jews” issue. Let me share a secret with you. And before I do I’ll put some perspective on it. Lets take fiat currency, loaned at interest. Evil right? Kill the jews cause they loaned us money and now you have to pay it back PLUS something more.

      Well I guess you hate free markets and capitalism as well. Do you expect others, be it people or corporations, to sell their goods at exactly the cost to make them? Or should there be something in it for them? Maybe some profit? Maybe the worker who produces the good should get something out of it too huh? Oh no fuck that, that is INTEREST!

      Get some perspective on things before you blame one group, race, religion, alien or government for all the woes of the world.

      People sign on the dotted line, on their honor and/or word alone. Take some responsibility for your actions and quit blaming everyone else for your short-comings. Can’t afford your mortgage? Is that really the banks fault? Did you realize the bleeding hearts made it so they HAD to lend to people that had no chance of meeting the obligation?

      This is an engineered collapse of society going back over 100 years. It is called Marxism, Socialism, Communism.

      You didn’t actually think we won the cold war did you? We are being destroyed from within because everyone is looking outside of themselves to find the problem.

      • Just Asking says:

        And what racial group developed, promoted and orchestrated Marxism/communism, leading to the murder of millions along the way?
