There is nothing wrong with that reporting.That will not affect your tax return and will not affect your refund.
Why Report These Payments?
Drug dealers and smugglers often use large cash payments to “launder” money from illegal activities. Laundering means converting “dirty” or illegally-gained money to “clean” money.
The government can often trace this laundered money through the payments you report. Laws passed by Congress require you to report these payments. Your compliance with these laws provides valuable information that can stop those who evade taxes and those who profit from the drug trade and other criminal activities.
So far - that reporting does not affect regular taxpayers.
