But you just need to go to a bank and buy a money order.
Reader comment on: The War on Cash, IRS Style

Actually having a lot of cash on you makes you a good target for a mugging. Go to a bank and get a cashiers check, the bank will if you are a customer take any amount of cash to buy the cashiers check. I suspect the issue is that IRS offices are not set up to handle cash so it does cost a lot to handle a few transactions, since cash payments need to be in person, while all other payments go thru lockboxes run by banks. Plus of course if you go above 10k a suspicious activity report gets filed.
