(a) Suspected Counterfeit Currency. A Brick-and-Mortar Business may refuse to accept Cash or putative Cash that the business reasonably suspects to be counterfeit.
(b) Large Denominations. A Brick-and-Mortar Business may refuse to accept Cash in any denomination larger than a twenty-dollar bill, but shall otherwise accept any combination of paper Federal Reserve Notes and metal coins in connection with any transaction covered by Section 5503.
(c) Single Transactions Above $5,000. Where a single transaction involves the purchase of one or more goods and/or services, the total price of which (including tax) exceeds $5,000, a Brick-and-Mortar Business must accept Cash that is proffered as payment for any amount up to $5,000, but may refuse to accept Cash as payment for the remainder of the amount due. By way of example but not limitation, if a customer purchases an item or items of jewelry the total price of which (including tax) is $7,500, the customer would be entitled to pay up to $5,000 in cash, but the Brick-and-Mortar Business would be permitted to require the customer paying $5,000 in cash to pay the remaining $2,500 due using some form of payment other than Cash.
