Have any of you downloaded this software for processing SARs? The directions on the website state that you have to apply for a Transmittal Code Number from the Detroit Processing Center before you install the software.
I have a couple of questions, first - do you have to call and obtain this information or do you have to print and fax the "Application for Magnetic Media Reporting of Suspicious Activity Reports"? My next question is - if you have to file through a diskette where is the benefit? To me it is easier to type the report, print, and mail it.
I hope someone can shed some light on this. Has anyone heard if FinCEN ever intends to create a secure site where we can file reports via the internet and do away with diskettes and paper?
Here is the site in case anyone else is interested: FinCEN
