A financial institution shall file a report of the transaction with the department in a form and at the time that the department, by regulation, shall require. The filing with the department within the time specified in its regulations of a duplicate copy of a report of the transaction required by Section 6050I of Title 26 of the United States Code, and any regulations adopted thereunder, shall satisfy the reporting requirements of this subdivision. This subdivision does not apply to a financial institution, as defined in Section 5312 of Title 31 of the United States Code and Section 103.11 of Title 31 of the Code of Federal Regulations and any successor provisions thereto.

(b) A financial institution, as defined in Section 5312 of Title 31 of the United States Code and Section 103.11 of Title 31 of the Code of Federal Regulations and any successor provisions, shall file with the department, at any time as the department by regulation shall require, a duplicate copy of each report required by Sections 5313 and 5314 of Title 31 of the United States Code and by Sections 103.22 and 103.23 of Title 31 of the Code of Federal Regulations, and any successor provisions thereto. The filing pursuant to this subdivision shall satisfy all reporting and recordkeeping requirements of this title.

(c) (1) A financial institution with actual knowledge of the requirements of this section that knowingly and willfully fails to comply with the requirements of this section shall be liable for a civil penalty.

(2) The court may impose a civil penalty for each violation. However, in the first civil proceeding against a financial institution, the civil penalties for all violations shall not exceed a total sum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

If a civil penalty was imposed in two or more prior civil proceedings, the civil penalties for all violations shall not exceed a total sum of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000).

(3) A proceeding for a civil penalty under this subdivision may be brought only by the Attorney General of California or the district attorney for the county in which the violation is alleged to have occurred. The proceeding shall be governed by the Code of Civil Procedure.

(4) This subdivision shall not apply to any case where the financial institution is criminally prosecuted in federal or state court for conduct related to a violation of this section.
